When production is under way shortly, we have come out with a small mammal ear opener that should do the trick. You can see it under Glen Connelys site . Will keep you updated. As for now, just patience and a sharp knife, or another little trick Bill gaither told me about is a small wooden cuticle thingamabob that women use for pushing down cuticles on their fingers.

are featured on the Taxidermy Industry Announcements page of www.hidetanning.net. Photos of his prototype are there, along with any contact information you might need.

As new information becomes available, Tom will send it to me, and I will update the article. I suspicion Tom is going to have a winner.

Tom is actively seeking a manufacturing company to do some form of mass production. Individuals associated with such a company might wish to approach Tom as a potential manufacturer.

Sorry about the confusion of location of the article, but the websites are linked back and forth. Using the link Mr. Edwards has graciously provided will take you right in.
