    I know there are lots of different ways people do this, but at the moment, I cannot lift anything due to a recent shoulder surgery. So, I had my customer lay this head under my electric hoist. I drove a 3/8 rebar as far as I could go down the spinal column and into the skull. I began screwing 3 inch screws around the rebar til I had it locked in. Hooked in the hoist, and skinned at ease at a comfortable height!

    Good idea. Looks like it didnt have a shield either. I'm sure that was a blessing.

    Oh yes...there is plenty of shield there. I pressure wash them to remove everything but the shield, then take it off using a scalpel...very time consuming.
