I use catfish skinning pliers to grip the skin to get started they grip better than your fingers or regular pliers they also have a spring that holds them open .
Another thing they do very well is pull staples or tacks out because they are spring loaded just slide the corner under the staple or tack and rock the pliers sideways its the fastest and most thorough way to pull staple out of beaver but far that i have found

Looks like this one... https://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-S...p;sr=1-6&keywords=victorinox+skinner

I have one and I can easily shave hair with it with just a couple passes from this sharpener... https://www.amazon.com/AccuSharp-AC...4&keywords=accusharp+knife+sharpener

Try is and see, you're out less than $8 if I'm wrong, but I'm not wrong. smile


Gotta say, my man ADC has never let me down whether it be his dp bait, skinning machine and now this knife sharpener I just got today. He definitely wasnít wrong about it lol

I made a clamp for holding hind foot when making opening cuts on table.
I first made a traditional flat base to screw into table top. Before mounting I realized I needed another in front of the table. I then cut off flat base and welded a half inch pipe to bottom of clamp. Now it's portable. I can use at workbench or outside work table for other projects.

Old vice grips, washer & pipe (or rebar)-

Rebar for larger jaws-

Drill hole for mounting-

Place in hole and it's mounted-

Also swivels-

Once again, this clamp is portable. Can be used on different areas of the fur table. or use at workbench for off season projects.
Plus clamp can be easily stored away when not in use.

Do you have any Fur Shed Tips or Tricks?

If you need to measure something on the line and don't have a tape measure, you can always use something you already know how long it is. Pre-measuring your trenching tool, shovel, hammer or even your hand or foot will give you a good idea. The distance of your outstretched hand is quick and easy. Also a dollar bill is 6" long so x 2 = 12" or can be folded to into half or quarters to make 3" or 1 1/2". Not like one needs to be overly accurate on the line but it can come in handy in a pinch.


Common sense is a not a vegetable that does well in everyone's garden.

You can also make small notches on say, a hammer handle, ax handle, or something similar if you so choose.
