Hello, I was just reading some "question" posts on here and then had this idea about making a post to share the tools we use in our taxidermy shops, that we like the most. I think it would be grand if everyone would post their favorite tool or tools for mammal taxidermy, and how they use it. I will start with a tool I got a couple years ago while I was at a shop in Michigan for a seminar. Our great taxidermy.net friend Mr. T aka Low-T was there and he brought some tools he made in his woodworking shop. He calls it on his site the 'Ear and Nose Taxidermy Tool' but I call it a T-Stick. It is perfect for turning ears on small mammals by using the small end to push the skin open to the edges. I also use it to stretch the skin for fleshing and thinning nostrils and eye holes (like a fleshing horn). I have also used it as a rolling pin, and seam smasher, and a spider squisher. Here is where I got it, made with love by Mr. T. http://www.paultproducts.com/Paul_Thompson_Products/For_Sale.html#3 If you have any neat or special tools that you would like to show everyone, please post them on this thread. It could help some new taxidermists with choosing which tools to buy (or put on their Santa list).
