yes we do tumble them in a drummer with corncob grit. we tumble them furside out, then jerry fleshes them, then we tumble them skinside out, then i board em.

it might take a little extra time( not much the way we work it) but it sure makes a world of difference in the put up,imo. i think it also takes less time to dry em. just my .02.

i know for a fact theyre easier to handle than when theyre not drummed, lol.( found out the hard way)_

2 questions...Why are they easier when they're not drummed? And where do you get corncob grit?

Youngtrapers Dad, I have a question about your mink. Why is the back fur go almost the whole length of your tails? Is that normal? If so, I think I have been cutting mine wrong.

Mark


the back legs are pinned to the same side of the board as the tail to make a larger inspection window. no cuts are different

to add to marbleyes photos here are some more

the good castor photo



last years fur (most of it) 125 beav, 104 rats, 42 mink, and others, all the critters with tags in them in the photo were taken in 9 days



wood vs. wire skunks



fox and skunks



the way a face should look nose and lips gone ears removed (then the grader does not feel a hard wisker or ear when he grades them), I also start fleshing behind the eye so I can take the ear cartilage out so it will not spoil

FlatSet, I have to think, that there are 2 kinds of furs, that the graders say to their co-workers "Check out these furs!"...When they get a LOWSEY batch, and when they get a batch of furs that look like yours! NICE JOB!

imo, theyre easier to stretch because theyre not greasy and dont slip from my hands when im trying to pin them and they also dry faster.

Like Garmen said a little finish nail does the trick.

On the question about the nose hanging up or hanging down, for me I donít think it matters either way the reason the rats were hanging like this is because, this way we could us the room we had available most efficiently..
Again the photos look great!
