Lutan Fn And Tanning Barrel

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by Crook's Taxidermy, Jul 30, 2021.

  1. We have a 55 gal tanning drum and would like to use a citric Acid Pickle with lutan fn.
    Can anyone help us with time frames for how long to pickle and how long to tan?

    Pickle three days
    Read instructions on package for lutan otherwise lots in the search engine here.
    Tanning is based on weight plus what skins your tanning.
    Range 12-18 hrs
    Fox 12-14
    Deer 16-18
    Elk moose 18 plus
     

  3. I thought that by using a tanning drum, it would reduce your times in pickle and tan?

    Yes pickle and tanning can be cut down by continually agitation usually in half
