    I took the Joe Meder gamehead class this past spring and I finally have my shop about complete. I am going to buy a flesher but I am stuck between the Dakota Pro and the S&S. I was planning on purchasing the Dakota but I noticed the reduced price of the S&S. Now, I'm up in the air and need a little push towards one or the other.

    Please send some advice or reviews on this machine to help aid me in my decision.

    Thanks in advance

    Just as a note, Arlington Cape has a very good machine as well, in my opinion.

    The S&S Fleshing Machine used to retail for $2200. Currently they cost $1600. Price isn't the only factor when making a decision like this, but it's an important one.

    My vote out of the two would be Dakota Pro. I didn't like the way shavings hung up in the S S machine. I love the easy and multiple guard adjusters on the Pro.

    In my opinion Eager Beaver best!! Been shaving for 25 yrs, so I know a thing or two! Keith at Arlington makes a bad ass machine as well!!
