I appreciate the poster who put this out here so I could see this. We did make one of these and it worked great.... however I do have a few questions. We did have some of the rubber straps break and fly off. That one hit me in the chest and it did hurt. Then I had to stand off to the side. I do feel that this is a learning experience and the more you do it the better you get. Here are some of my questions. Did you pull the big wing feathers first? Did you you a variable speed drill or a single speed? We just had a single speed drill and wondered if we had a varible on a slower speed if that would help. That said, we did 13 birds in 4 hours. I still do a little more cleanup on them after they get out of the refrid from resting before I freeze them. We were very pleased with how much it helped. My problem areas on the bird were the wings, which I think will be helped if I pull the large feathers before I even start it on the plucker and the lower cavity near the vent. ETA... it was just 2 of us doing these birds and that was with stopping to add new rubber one time. So if we could have plugged through with no breaks I would say 3 hours on these.
