    I hope this is okay. Don't want to bend the rules. Had a couple requests for pictures. This one is a little dated but not much has changed. PM if interested. Thanks!

    I like your Wet Drum. Good piece of work Steve! How many capes do you estimate you can you tan in it at once - considering you're using EZ-100 at 1/2 Oz./Lb. of cape weight, 3 Ozs./1 Lb. of cape weight of Salt, and 1 Quart of Water/1 Lb. of cape weight in it? 15 minutes of run time - 45 minutes let the load rest - 4 hours total tan time? Just curious! What are its dimensions? Capes weighing about 6 Lbs. each.

    Re: Taxidermy drum

    Bruce thanks for the kind words. The dimensions of the drum are 24" wide and 32" to 34" diameter. That's about 90 gallons. Of course you never completely fill with liquid.

    15 gallons in there tans ten capes easily. Go to 30 gallons and you can tan 20 capes. So I usually tell folks to tan what you would want to shave in one day. Ask any tannery shaver how long it takes to shave a cape and you're likely to hear "10 minutes" so I suppose if you are fast you can do more. Not me though. ha ha

    Thanks Don! Appreciate the kind words.

    I will take this occasion to announce that we now have a financing option available for our drums. No money down, no payment for 3 months (or possibly even longer) and payments under a hundred.

    PM if interested.
