DIY fish scaler
« on: March 05, 2019, 12:51:12 PM »
3/4” PVC cut to 8” (could probably go a little shorter)
Hole for cord
Hole for bottle cap attached with nut and bolt

It took longer to find the materials at home depot than it did to actually make it :)

Tested it out last weekend and it got my fishy all nice and smooth!

I'm curious how well the egg beater in the drill works too!

I've always found that a simple soup spoon does the trick super fast.

Yep, classic redneck scaler!  Mine is made of wood and has 4 caps in a row held in with short screws.  You can chuck 'em when the caps rust and zap together another one.
