I wish I did. My back is a little lame today from doing coon and beaver.

Bean, you're getting drawn into this trapping thing. Watch out!

I have a fleshing machine but have not had very good luck when trying it on coyotes, etc. It is made and used for fleshing thicker skins like deer and also shaving deer hides, etc. Maybe someone (who has a ton of experience) will disagree with what I'm saying but I don' even attempt to use mine for fur skins anymore. Also, there might be other types that work better.

the 1 i have is great on coons unless you get a coon with a hard neck then i have to use a regular knife to start it as my blade is a little on the dull side for the hard necks but otherwise it works good but dont go to fast...

I have a cone type. It does a nice job on coon and is easy on the back. It is a little slower than fleshing by hand, about 8 per hour for me average. Set up is what takes the extra time.

I ordered a Quebec Pro fleshing machine (google "quebec fleshing machine" for pictures). But, like said before, it is manly for fleshing thicker hides (elk, deer, etc). I got it for my taxidermy business. When I get some practice, it will allow me to flesh an entire deer hide in less than 15 minutes.

I have a Dakota IV round wheel similar to Guts. It's worthless for putting up fur. I use it for taxidermy.

I know what you are asking about though. I've seen the cone type fleshers and they look pretty slick. Just don't know much about'em.

I have a rawhide which I have had for about 30 years. Use it on pickles or tanned hides or even salted and rehydrated buty find them almost worthless on fur fleshing. I have done beaver with them but had to dust with fine sawdust to get a bite but the time it took was no savings whatsoever. A good old sheffield flesher with a sharbened edge will do a hise much more quickly and effeciently.......Mac~

I flesh deer hides by hand and can do that in 15 minutes or less... They are alot easier to flesh them most hides. Actually they would be a great hide for someone new to start out on. Little value easy to do and plenty of practise.

Sorry Pogo I know this does not help you out. Have you tried fleshing them standing up Like Fishguts rig. I am building one of those for next year.
