I suck at fleshing. I've done a couple dozen deer hides, a bear, and a few dozen small game animals. They always seem to take me several hours and destroy my back. Is a fleshing machine going to make me zip through them with ease? I don't even know how they work, I'm just looking for a way to make the worst part of taxidermy less miserable. I find it funny that taxidermists want hides fleshed before tanning/mounting. If I'm going to go through fleshing, turning ears lips etc I might as well tan the thing my self. If it's worth the rather large investment for a hobbyist, which one should I get? Currently working on badger rugs. Each badger is taking me about 4 hours to flesh, cut feet out to claw, turn nose etc.
