? on shaveing hides

Submitted by Tim on 11/23/2002. ( )

I just got through watching "Fleshing and Tanning basics" from WASCO.

On this video the guy (can't remember names) that was shaveing the hide was doing it with a little skinning knife on a fleshing beam. Didn't look as dificult as I imagined. Any way, you could see the uneaven cuts in the hide from shaving by hand. The next guy took the same cape and used an electric shaver/flesher for the bulk of the hide.

Now my question is, will these uneaven marks show up after it has been mounted and dried?

Thanx for the help, Tim

They will not show, unless you shave it and mount it inside out!
I will repeat this one more time, it is not HOW thin you make a hide, but how evenly you shave it! Oddball
