Does anyone have any pics or links where I can see a fresh skinned then defleshed skin?

 I am going to try to start some tanning work, but I have very little idea what the processes should look like!  I have some squirrels and deer feet i want to practice a few different types of chemicals on and see which i like best. 
  thanks in advance for advice!

Here's one thread that might help you too...it's turning eyes, ears, lips etc.  The tutorial part begins on the 2nd page.  Glen Conley really pitched in big time.  Mostly just remember to get as much of the meat & membranes off as you can.  With feet you won't have to turn eyes etc, but the pics show good examples anyway.

Nina's pics will help too Dark.  Good luck & have fun!

I do all the facial fleshing by hand with a Havel's #22 scalpel blade, and everything else on my Dakota 5 fleshing machine.

Nice pictures Nina.  Thank You.  Have you always had the Dakota 5 or was that an upgrade?

Nina, the pictures speak for themselves but the work is simply great.  That's an excellent fleshing job.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Bighunter, I got the Dakota 5 about two years ago. It is my first and only fleshing machine. I want to uprgrade to the Dakota Pro when I get some extra money.

I tried once or twice to use my fleshing machine for raw capes but it reminded me too much of when I had to clean the meat department at Kroger...GROSS...too hard to clean that raw stuff out of the machine for me. BUT...if you treat the hide with the Stop Rot about an hour before you flesh, it works pretty good, and doesn't seem to gum up as much.
