Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Has anyone made an electric drum scaler? Any pictures that you would be willing to share? I found one on Utube, but there wasn't much info given except that it spun 60 times per minute.

I've seen commercial ones in the usual outdoors shops, but never pulled the trigger on one because of the price. Good to know they tend to tenderize (pulverize? lol) the fish. How, exactly, do they remove scales?

I cheat if I am removing scales from a lot of  fish  to clean them whole for frying I   break out the high pressure washer,  set on low it blows those scales off  as quick as bream on a cricket. LOFR

A guy I used to work with wanted my old clothes dryer with the metal drum to make a fish scaler. He said he had built them before. I think he lined the drum with hardware cloth. I never saw the finished product.
