    Good morning Keith,

    Isn't there a procedure to lash the rawhide then soak it wet for extreme shrinkage in sunlight ?

    I forgot how many times to soak and dry before swabbing with saddle soap.

    I'm not sure about saddle soap but lacing in snowshoes is varnished after drying.

    Good morning Randy T,

    Interesting. Thank you.

    In my earlier times, had used varnish to waterproof matches.

    I have never heard of that method P, & the way I do it has always worked for me.

    Good afternoon Keith,

    The shrinking method was described in a pre WWI Army manual.

    I never used method because of no broken axle ever on my evac cart.

    Glad to get updated info however.
