    I thought a few of you might get a kick out of this? ;D

    Me shaving a Mule Deer cape. Machine is called a Reliable. Alot of exposed knife huh?

    Hit a bullet on the cape before this one, so I had to steel often. :mad: Also I didnt notice the legs were tubed, till after I started. Slowed me down a little. Still not a bad time, I guess?

    I definately got a kick out of that Old Shaver, If I tried to shave that fast I would be pulling back bloody stumps for fingers. Great job showing your talent on a shaver.

    That's impossible.

    I've talked to a lot of shavers and they all say it takes them "about 10 minutes" to shave a deer cape. Never seen one of em do it in less than 25.

    Sweet! I notice that you cut off the machine and steel while the blade is coasting...what is the rational for that?....safety maybe?

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    So what's the big deal. I can do it just like that. The cape will look like a hula skirt when I'm finished, but I can do it that fast I'm sure. Aubrey, it's pretty obvious this ain't your first rodeo.

    No, the machine stays running? You cant steel with the machine off.

    The blade just has alot of crud built up on it, so it does look like it is turning a little slow, I guess. It has a 2hp motor on it, so its moving at a good clip!
  8. Impressive Aubrey!!!!

    oldshaver, what is the benefit or reason for having that much blade exposed ??
    That would take some practice to keep from cutting my arm badly !!

    Joey Arender big mouth alert

    cool I was very happy with the one I did in 25 mins yesterday afternoon. that is until the LAST TAG OF SKIN, I was pulling from the ear out infront of the blade turned loose.

    you know that spinning blade above the guard finds knuckle bone real quick. so that 25 mins turned in to a 1 hour round trip to the uregent care clinic 45 mins in the clinic and a 30 dollar co-pay. plus a freakin sore shoulder from the tetanus(SP) shot and a even more sore thumb.

    Lesson learned. everything goes to tannery come next season. :D where you speed shavers can cut em.
  20. That's fast shaving...but...did you speed up that video just a little bit?
