    is it possible to use the mini flesher on a hyde that has been tanned, the hyde was not fleshed
    good enough for me.

    Ok let’s see here
    It’s tanned ? But now it’s not fleshed!
    Or do you mean shaved properly?

    If it’s not fleshed then it’s probably not tanned properly.
    If it’s just tanned and it’s still a thick hide then in both cases YES .

    i got the hide from a friend, that try his hand in taxidermy, however gave it up.

    he used the mini flesher, and then tanned the hide, when i got the hide i was
    not satisfied with fleshing. So still being pretty inexperienced was not sure if
    i could put the mini flesher on it again to flesh it better.

    thanks
