Hi all. I have a question for all home tanners. I have been using Pro 1 for 4 or 5 years now, and it works really well. Great stretch. but when it dries, the leather becomes rock hard. Mainly on Y incision...but I use a half circle cut... where the needle has gone thru and left rippling feel to cape. I sometimes use a McKenzie leather oil on cape, to keep it more pliable when mounting. I have also used Trubond in the past as well as EZ 100 which I loved, but I have no place to dispose of waste water. So, guess my question is, is there a tan most of you use, that does not get as rock hard when dry, or do some of you use a softening oil after tan is washed out. Quick Rinse... I was thinking of Trubond 1000b ...same price as the 1000, but has oil in it, capes do stay softer. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
