Hello all, Was just wondering if anyone knows what horsepower motor would be good for attaching to a wire fleshing wheel ? About how fast should it turn?

try the search button and look up bird fleshing there is a ton of info for you. Hope this helps Rob
Here is my "recipe" for a bird flesher.
One table/window fan.
One soft wire brush wheel
One 16 inch deep (approx.) clear rectangular storage container or plastic tub from walmart
Take a few peices of 2x4 ro make a base mount for the motor. (enough to give the brush a good height inside the tub.
Cut a hole in the bottom of the tub, just large enough to put the motor shaft through.
screw everything down onto a peice of plywood.
Now you have a see-through flesher that will clean up easily.
Good luck! emial if you need help.
Oh Yeah.....cost....about $15.00 if you get the fan from a garage sale.
Beats the heck out of $150.00 plus shipping & handling.
No Warranty though.
Now....if only we could built a good fleshing machine.
i bought an inexpensive variable speed hand drill and mounted it on a wood block with the chuck sticking through the homemade box with a clear piece of plexi glass on top. the 3/8 in. variable speed drill is a small horsepower motor and works great. besides, you can always use the drill on other projects!
