wire wheel, you can shave them on a flesher but I've had much better luck doing them on a wire wheel. My particular wheel has the wire cut short so it's stiff and breaks through the membrane easily.

definitly try a wire wheel on the foxes, i use it on them all the time and they usually come out good, you also my want to try a knot wheel , which is stiffer than a regular one for the tough spots
