Deer and Gameheads / Re: Suggestions on how to correct this
« Last post by socalmountainman on January 21, 2018, 12:17:08 PM »
Every so often I’ll get these “black lines”.  The hides seem shaved evenly and it’s not under sized for the form, but I can’t get it taxied in a position to make them disappear. Anyone have any tips, tricks, or suggestions on how to correct this?
I noticed your manikin has a right turn.  About the only time you wouldn't see them is if the deer had no turns or other movement to cause the wrinkles in the natural skin. I always leave them in and none of my customers have ever asked.  Joe

Deer and Gameheads / Re: Elk Wall Pedestal
« Last post by Tanglewood Taxidermy on January 21, 2018, 12:04:49 PM »
I usually make my own wall peds by altering a pedestal form and installing a back board for deer. I don't know how well it would work on an elk.

Skulls and Skeletons / Re: Mold on antlers and breaking
« Last post by Sea Wolf on January 21, 2018, 12:03:41 PM »
Can't say I have ever seen damage like that. Yes, if they are soaked in paraloid B-72 for a while, the resin soaks in and will stabilize the pieces. In some of those shots, the antlers look like they might be hollow on some of the broken ends. Are they? Or somehow soft and spongy inside?  ...  On postimage.org I use the "Direct Link" for pictures. :)

Beginners / Re: Turkey taxidermy
« Last post by socalmountainman on January 21, 2018, 12:02:34 PM »
I'll hand tumble a turkey skin just like SoCal's pic for about 15 minutes after towel drying per Tanglewood. I'm guessin I have 12-15 lbs of corn cob grit in there. I have a mix of fine and large grit. I find that you're pretty close to bein as dry as you're gonna get after about 10 minutes... and after 15 minutes I feel like I'm wastin my time. At that point, I feel more productive with the shop vac.

Yup, about 10-15 minutes just to get the feathers looking normal.  I then proceed with the mounting and finish the drying with air.  I use compressed air but before I had a good compressor I used my shop vac.  Most you can put the hose on the output side and blow air instead of sucking air.  As for my wire wheel flesher I converted my wire wheel/grinder by stealing a serving tray plastic cover from the wifey.... she's still looking for that thing!

The Taxidermy Industry / Re: Is it just me or......?

Guys, it's not about the Paypal,  it's about sending any monies to someone who hides their identity behind a user name.  Go to my profile and you can see my age, my address, my website address, everything.  I have nothing to hide and I want all of you to know me.  If I decide to sell something on this forum I don't think anyone would hesitate to do business with me.  That's all.  I am not sending a money order or check to someone who fails to fill out basic information on who they are.

Fish Taxidermy / Re: So far so good
« Last post by Cecil on January 21, 2018, 10:39:49 AM »
Spend less time on the fish forum and more time doing fish taxidermy  ;D I"ll get my ear chewed for that  ;)

You're right Bender.  A maximum time of 20 minutes a day is just too much! Ill try and cut back. Thanks for the constructive criticism.

And btw if you're counting posts as how much time I spend here, which I think you are, it took me all of 25 seconds to type this post.
