STRETCHING BOARDSó What is the beat pattern of stretching board for skunk, muskrat, weasel and fox? Does anybody make stretching board patterns for sale?
Your question was received too late for us to make an illustration and use it in this number, but you will find such in our books, Steel Traps, Fur Farming and Science of Trapping. The proper shape for a stretching board is one that will stretch the skin fully, and uniformly, neither too long, nor too wide. The body of the board should taper slightly from the base to the shoulders; from there it should taper more rapidly, the taper increasing to the head, which rounds down to a rounded point at the nose. The board should be beveled from the center to the edges, and the edges rounded and smooth. Yes, there is a party making stretching board patterns for sale, and I believe the name and address of the party is C. F. Morton, New-Buryport, Mass.
