    Home-made squirrel skinner

    Friends and I built these during break at work. It is'nt to hard to build. If interested I can give dimensions of this. Anyone who can get a hold of a torch and sheetmetal can do this.

    I believe it's either 10 or 12 gauge. Either one may work.

    Ill bet you could sell those things.

    Ive got one sort of like that but its alot bigger and probably not nearly as easy to carry around as yours would be.

    Ive got it mounted on a 2 x 4 and I keep it in my truck during rabbit season so we can clean the rabbits right after the hunt (when you have help).

    One that size would be even easier to carry around.

    I would like the dimensions. We have quite a bit of 11 ga stainless laying around the shop that I can get for .05 a lb. Aught to be able to whip out a
    couple pretty quick.

    I have one that the folks around Little Rock makes and it works well.

    I like the slots on yours better though, mine has like triangle shaped holes and you have to feed the legs in them.

    Thats the one I have. It works OK but I think the one that woodsnwater made might work even better.
