    Quick Question, When you send hides or furs to the tannery are they fleshed and turned and salted or paying a fleshing fee?

    I send them fleshed, turned, salted, folded and dry.

    I guess it depends on the tannery. I don't accept salted capes, mainly because my service is that they come back ready to mount so I'm not going to be sewing up all the holes that were put into the cape from someone that doesn't really know what they are doing or they leave a lot of meat on or don't split anything.
    On the other hand, if your doing all the thinning and sewing when they come back I would send them out salt dried to your tannery.
