I went to Stefan Savides's workshop last week. Had a great time, enjoyed the area and sights, and learned and brought back tons of new ideas and tactics. I have had a problem recently fleshing birds due to the lack of feeling in my hands. This is from my neck injury and something I thought I would just have to live with. Stefan uses a custom built flesher that has a low rpm motor and coarse 3" wheel. Once I sat down at his wheel to flesh a sprig, Ross, and pheasant- I found that this set-up was the solution to my problems. I will probably buy a flesher from Stefan in the future but have the parts to build one of my own in the mean time. How many of you have built your own fleshers? What rpm motor did you use? How does it compare to the commercial boxes, ie. Soft Touch, etc? Any ideas will be welcome. Thanks, Doug.
