    Had a buddy make this today at a machine shop. It is made out of industrial plastic. I can do any thing from a coon to a elk with it. And it cleans up easy and is harder the wood so it won't get nicks like wood.

    13 3/4" long. 1/2" at small end.
    2 1/4" at large end.

    dktaxidermy I'm on top of the dirt; how bad can it be?

    i use a leg from a 1960's coffee table it is tapered very nicely. i can see the advantage in something harder but my experience is that plastic, industrial or otherwise will eventually nick. maybe stainless steel. .... lol

    I have an old lamp that has a stainless steel sleeve that tapers and would work great. I have been picking on the wife about tearing it apart. Guess I won't now teal she gets new one next mouth. Lol

    I use a lightbulb that looks like a trardrop then if the razor hits the glass it dont dig in or catch on the glass, that way you can flesh faster as you get to the edges because it won't dig in.......works well
  8. I recently took stained glass class and discovered that they use a "fid" to smooth out copper and lead tape. The fid comes in various sizes but the smaller one works great on small critter eyes and noses.

    Looks like my dad's old Billy club, he used it for thumping tame rabbits.
