A DIY Fish Scaler

Expensive item, a fish scaler, unless you have an old wooden spoon, a few beer bottle tops and the same number of screws/nuts & bolts as beer bottle tops.
It could not be easier... Drill the bottle tops to fit the screws or nuts and bolts and screw or drill and fit them to the spoon. Cut the spoon to your chosen length and there you have it, an almost free fish scaler.

LOL I'm going to have to start collecting my hubby's beer-bottle caps, now. I've always just used a paring knife rubbed repeatedly (and shallowly) against the scaly side of the fish until I can't feel any more scales. This looks like it'd make that job a lot easier. Thanks for the suggestion!
