Made my self a pressure tanner / auto tanner . Pretty happy with the way it came out .
No need for pressure as it does nothing to tan the cape. It’s the constant agitation that does this.
It was covered by the maker Steve on he was the first to design it and cane back to say it wasn’t pressure but agitation.
Nice work but you wasted some money.
After reading many previous posts about auto tanners, and the act of the agitation being the enabler to a faster, more even tan, I got the idea to convert my old washing machine into one. I haven’t done it yet, but my thought is to override the timing mechanism so that I can Turn it on a mild agitate setting for 4 hours while the hide and tanning solution are in there. Even better, I can manually turn it to the drain setting to drain the contents and then use the spin setting to wring it out. Anybody ever try anything like this?
I don't know about that vtlongbeard. If you are using the agitator to do the skin movement I personally would be worried that the agitator would damage skins. Especially thin skins like foxes. If you do it please let us know how it works out. This is on top of the fact that you will be using a lot of tanning crystals which over time could get very expensive. Just my thoughts!
I only wasted around 200 dollars in materials i got the tank for 60 bucks so i think 200 is pretty good compared to 3000 for the original pressure tanner
where did you get your tank?
Hey Edgar, did you mount anything inside the tank to make the skins tumble? Thanks
you can save solution by where you run discharge hose
