    Default Washing machine fish scaler

    Seen one at reelfoot many years ago. Anyone know what modifications are needed?

    I would think you would have to dimple the holes in the drum, so the sharp edge is inside. Plus I don't think you want the spin cycle.

    I did read about the holes being bent with a screwdriver inwards but is agitator not modified also?
    suppose larger holes would have to be made in bottom to evacuate scales too. would like to see some pics.

    I have seen a couple that pull behind the boat and do the same thing.

    As have I, and they seem to work.
    maybe I should have explained that I recently replaced my old washing machine with a new and before I take it to the junkyard I am going to attempt to make a fish scaler out of it. For
    Gills only.
