    I never have either. It was junk before you put it in.
    I use Lutan instead of the junk crystals.

    I had some problems with slipping. I called and got some new crystals sent and everything was fine after that. You could tell that the hides were not tanned because the hides were not white and puffed up.

    Have used a pressure tanner several times now and no slippage, really a great tool . Sounds like the one you may have done already was going to slip , ya just never know.
     
  12. My bet is a few things, someone miss-mixed the chemicals or you are not using enough.

    I have one of the first Auto-tanners and its great. I like the old mix. But recently I have been using KROW TAN in it. All I can say is man you want to try it!!!!

    Mix the amounts for one or two capes and run it for two hours, pull the capes out flesh and 30 minutes more.
    Final fleshing.
    Wash in a washing machine. with TIDE. and a full tub of water.

    In the rinse I add 2 ounces of sodium bicarb.
