Only thing I use my dremel for is the sanding drum.
I use this to thin eye's, lips, nose, etc.

If you do birds a small round bit can be used to trough slots around artificial bird beaks.

There's no fleshing, or skinning bits?!?!? Dang, those are the kinds I needed but I guess I'll live.

Rocky, I think what you are trying to do is find a short fast easy way around fleshing. I was once there. The best thing you can do is get yourself a good knife and a beem and learn how to use it correctly. Sit down and get comfortable with your favorite music playing and enjoy what you are doing. I have a steel that i use to sharpen my knife about once every minute to two minutes. The biggest break through for me was the sharp knife and getting comfortable. After I learned this  i keep getting faster.

Thanks, I'll try that as soon as I can. The music idea is pretty good I wouldn't have thought of it.

I use  the dremel on nose eyes and lips also. It just seems to roll the skin off and is easier to control than a knife. It is also easier to fleash between the hair roots without cutting them.

I use a drywall cutting bit to clean the meat/membrane around the antler plate, this is very simple after the meat/membrane has been allowed to dry out a few days. I use the same bit for sculpting the inside of the nasal cavities.

What about the wire wheel? I think it might work if your careful. And what are those things McKenzie sells that are like a off brand dremel tool with 4 bits for fleshing, And other things. http://www.McKenziesp.com/KA10100-P13420C2051.aspx I'm sure someone has come up with a version for the dremel since it would be cheaper.

Cheaper usually does not last as long.  ;)

I use 120 grit on the 1/2" drum for thinning.... A 1/8 drill bit for nostril work on the form and a carbide bit for antler base cleaning.
I even keep a new spare dremel on hand!  ;) I'd be lost without my dremel!!! 10 years, been thru 3 dremel tools!!
