    Tie helium balloons on them. We moved a year ago. Three jam packed extra large uhauls. There’s a automotive tool an OBDII reader that wasn’t cheap that I have never found. So I had to buy another one. I’m expecting to find it any day now.

    I bought an air chisel thinking that would be the bees knees. Used once and is in one of my tool boxes.

    Post a video, I'd like to see this.
    I've been waiting for someone to post a 20 min green fleshing, turning and splitting video. Many folks claim they can do it in that time frame. After 12 years it still takes me about 1.5 hours for a deer size.

    I do all my initial fleshing with a pressure washer and a turbo tip. Gets all the meat off and the blood out of the hide. I can even turn the lips on the deer as well. Puts me well ahead of the game and leaves a white hide.

    I had some of that Crap get on my truck. I didn’t realize it was there. When I finally found it it took the paint with it. Then the area even though it was cleaned up smelt like rancid fat.

    Made that mistake once. Never park anything near it again.

    6A31638E-D9F0-4956-B99F-5CFFD8201E07.png I’ve been thinking about getting this farriers tool, heating the tip to have a slight curve in it. The tip being square and sharpen it to be able to push under the skin. Then the
    Curved part put an edge on it so that you could work it up pedicel it that makes sense.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    The trouble I see is that you still have an "L" with a sharp shank that would slice hide as well. The thin blade has no more leverage than the scalpel.
