    Back in the 60s when I started practicing taxidermy there was not to many taxidermists that had a wheel to thin hides, I did not either, fleshed and thinned skins on a beam, so that should answer your question.

    Call a taxi in your area ; ask if he can flesh your cape . It will cost you , but in the end you will have a better cape . and maybe some pointers to boot .

    I'd order a skife knife. It will save alot of time and greif.
