    I have done some searching on this but have not found an answer to this question.

    My questions are, if you use a pressure washer for fleshing is it still necessary to shave the hide on a fleshing machine? If so, should you shave the hide before the pickle? After the tanning? Both? How do you pressure washers do it? Thanks for any assistance as I take on this new adventure!
  2. Yes you use the pressure washer to flesh the hide before you pickle it, then you shave after its been in the pickle and before you apply the tanning agent. I've never used a pressure washer to flesh but I've seen it done on a youtube video.
