Good one Robbie. But I am concerned that you are filmed with the 2016 GAL calendar hanging on the wall behind you. Are you sure we are getting the LATEST information here?

For those contemplating doing it here in australia, I soak in shellite from bunnings for a week or so after boiling, kangaroo bone packs are also around 5 dollars

This video was filmed in 2016 and only released yesterday. I have a several year long queue of videos ready to go and release one every three weeks or so.
I have put the unreleased ones on my website and they can be viewed now for a small fee.

I have processed bone for nuts and saddles but I enlist the services of my pet Labrador, Nelson, to do much of the preprocessing work. He is an expert at this and gets the bone nice and clean then he leaves it in the sun to bleach. It took very little training for him to do such skilled work.

Hi Robbie
We love your work. It is staggering how much high quality material you put out for the education of rank amateurs such as myself. Thanks for giving us access to the archive. I would hate you to drop dead on the job with treasures still unreleased to the world!
Best wishes
Mark
