    How does a Professional Tannery Break hides. I'm sure it's not by hand. Does anyone know? ....S

    Fur drum is used, but still is incorporated with hand breaking, just as good of a job can be accomplished with elbow grease, just time consuming, and I will add that breaking of the skins is not a difficult procedure, if the skins are properly dressed for the occasion.
