    I use a good sharp necker fleshing knife and beam and do all my green fleshing, takes about 5 min max to do a cape. All my tanned capes on the machine.

    I am new at the use of a fleshing machine also and agree to contact Bruce Rittle and get a copy of his fleshing video.

    I also agree with posts above that when I started out on a machine I kept 8-10" of skin between my hands and flesh small areas at first. I found it much easier to do so on a freshly pickled hide. And stay away from thin areas (armpits etc...)

    Hope this helps
