Cabelas, or any out door store that does Hunting items, Bass Pro shop ect.

A good heavy cleaver with a sharp edge and you'd be done with all 144 in under 10 minutes. The hardware store in my neighborhood has old hickory cleavers for around $15. I'm sure you could get an even better deal at a restaurant supply store.

ok thanks

hold the drum in 1 hand and with a sharp boning knife cut around the bone between the end of the pin bone and the knuckle. the skin and cartilage will clean off easily and when you cook the drum the meat will turn into a lollipop. 

 

if he has a band saw you can clean and sanitise it well with 1oz bleach in 4lt of water before and after, I've used them in the past fro meat, essential the same as a meat saw but a meat saw is designed to be hosed down and a slightly different blade.

 

I do have a good sharp and heavy cleaver in my tool kit for such times, they do a great job!


Yes I am aware you don't cut the knuckle bone off  and yes I know how to trim a chicken leg for lollipops.  I am just looking for a tool of some sort that would make that cutting process go a little faster that's all.  Not looking to completely cut off the knuckle bone.  I was checking out my husband's work shop and yes he does have a band saw (and lots of other saws) they all look pretty intimidating - might have to just cut these lollipops like I have been doing...........thanks for your info madman mike.

do them all in batch steps. cut all or a portion then remove the skin off the bone on all then remove the tendons all at the same time.

 

that will speed up the process more than anything.

 

and DAMN!!! I got to make me some of those!!!


lol Mike - yup you should make you a batch!  thanks again for all your info.  Will sharpen up my knives and away I go.  Sorry for the misunderstanding - everyone thought I was looking for a way to cut the end bone off - that's NOT want I wanted to do.  I just wanted to find a SPEEDY way of trimming these bad boys that's all. The order just changed to 172 lollipops:yahoo:By the time I trim the first 100 the rest should go pretty darn quick lol......  Josie

hmmm a Dremel??? I found that tool in Jerry's toolbox with 6 different attachments.  One looks like a tiny saw blade. I tried the mini saw blade and it cut through the SKIN and all the tendons in a second leaving me with a nice clean bone (with the knuckle still attached).  That's the solution I was looking for a way to quickly trim my lollipops.  Thanks dougmays - that is a great idea that is going to workout just fine for me.  Might have to record my process!  Jerry's Dremel is now my dedicated "lollipop trimmer"   I bet he is looking down from heaven saying, "Come on babe, you're using my Dremel for what ????" lol.  Thanks again dougmays!

A tube cutter that has replaceable razor might work. You can find them fairly cheap, and if the blade gets dull you just pop in a new razor. Most are plastic and would be easy to clean, plus the benefit of a new blade when needed.

No, not me in the Video, see below. I didn't think you wanted to cut the Bone but thought I would post the video to make sure. The Dremel is a Great idea. I would use a large enough Ziptop Bag that you can put the tip through one corner but the rest of the tool is covered loosely. This will keep the Dremel clean while still allowing air to the motor for cooling...JJ

Got the perfect tool- go to home depot, in the electrical dept. Get a small cable cutter, looks like a little bolt cutter, but with circular jaws.  It's Da Bomb!!
