    Just a question, I'm still new at this. But will the high rate of speed at which the grinder turns create heat? And would that heat have any affect on the hide? With slipping?

    Why Thank Ya Sir!
  4. I use a wire wheel, but only on the face. I pressure flesh the cape first omitting the face. I then take it to the wire wheel and flesh the face. I DONT apply much pressure to the wheel, and use my forefinger to hold the cape and judge the pressure. If its hot to your finger, its twice as hot to the cape. It takes practice, but in my opinion its the best way to flesh the face.

    Well said. You dont need to apply much pressure to flesh with the grinder on a cape. I use both wheels the wire to rough flesh and the stone wheel to thin and do my face work as well as turn the lip;s The wire wheel will clean up the ear butts.

    The ket to the methoud is never, ever let the hide set in one spot to long for the simple fact you'll burn a hole in the cape like a hot knife through butter. My personal preferance when fleshing with the grinder is to either do it 2 ways. Flesh green. Or thawed and washed and only tumbled for about 5 minutes. Allowing plenty of moisture at all times.

    I flesh with a wire wheel on my drill for muskrats to take off the saddle. Works like a charm.

    I've used one for many deer capes. The stone worked well on thinning the chin and lips. It will be a little warm but I never had hair slip.
