Mastering the taxidermist's art takes skill and practice. Even the most skilled taxidermists face challenges – such as when a customer brings in a "project" that is poorly skinned that requires an extensive degree of physical labor to properly prepare the hide or skin for tanning.
In addition, hides with a high degree of fat cover are heavy and awkward to flesh. Using conventional fleshing machines and a draw knife requires a vigorous workout to scrape away congealed fat and membranes.
Moreover, fleshing machines are imprecise; bringing a large fatty hide to a stationary whirling blade will not always deliver consistent quality results. Also, there's always the risk that the blade will cut too deeply into the skin, loosening the hair follicles and causing the fur to pull out.
Up until now, these challenges had no easy solution. But that's all changed now! The new Whizard® Series II Trimmer can solve these and many other fleshing challenges. Available in electric or pneumatic models and containing special design features so unique they're patented, our Whizard® Trimmer represents the first major technological advancement in the taxidermist's trade in years – truly a breakthrough in improving the ease and precision of fleshing operations.
With the mobile Whizard® Trimmer, you bring the fleshing tool to the hide for improved speed, mobility and control - with just a fraction of the physical effort of traditional processes. By introducing additional speed and efficiency into your operation, you can now take on more projects – including what used to be those dreaded “make good” projects – for more productivity and more profits.
The fast-rotating, circular blade of the Whizard® Trimmer cuts through heavy fat and membrane quickly and precisely. As long as the hide is pulled tight, the blade will glide almost effortlessly across the skin, while the fur on the back side provides elasticity from the cutting edge of the blade. Even though fat tends to congeal and make the work difficult in conventional fleshing operations, the Whizard® Trimmer has the power and mobility to cut through the fat quickly and precisely.
When you consider all the advantages the Whizard® Trimmer offers, it adds up to one result: it's an investment that will pay for itself many times over. And our specialists will show you how. Contact us today!
