    battery augers

    I decieded to go with the Ion. did not want to have to worry about mixing or hauling gas. Not to mention trying to get rid of the gas odor off hands while fishing after filling tank.

    battery augers

    The new ion seems to be the rage right now, but wanted to get thoughts on the ION versus the strikemaster battery. The strikemaster is a bit cheaper, but does not have reverse. both were well rated.

    Wheel House springs

    maybe its just me, but I have been looking at both houses and photos of the spring system on houses. to me it looks like there is no way the spring can move the way they are attached.

    Wheel House springs

    My son and I are thinking of building a wheel house out of an old 5th wheel trailer frame. It currently has two axles under it, I was going to take them out and replace with a single heavier one that would swivel up and down. Would use the front legs and add two 3000lb trailer jacks welded to the back to raise and lower. Trouble is I can only seem to find springs for the wheel with a 9/16 eyehole. I am worried that this will not be big enough to hold the weight when towing. The house would be approximately 18ft long and 6 1/2 wide. Are there springs with bigger eyes on them out there or will these hold. most of the weight should still be on the truck when towing.

    Swamp People

    been watching it for a couple of years now, not sure why. But my son was working for a company in Marshall, Michigan this past summer that was working on the embridge oil spill over there. they were using air boats to get around, most of which were hire from down south. His driver happen to be Elizabeth's brother. said he had some interesting stories to tell about her. bottom line was the producer have a tendency to add-live a little, imagine(sp) that.

    attaching reels to poles

    I have a couple of rods that do not have any way to attach the reels to them. I have tried electrial tape but it seems to have too much stretch to it. thought about shrink tubing but have not see any bigger than 1 inch. would need 1 1/4 - 1 1/2. what does everyone else use, there was disscussion on this before, but i could not find the thread. thanks

    8 or 10 inch auger

    first auger I own was a 10 with a 3hp, the beast was heavy and would not run at all, took that back and bought the SM lazer mag in a 9 inch. should I ever have to replace it would go with an 8, but simple because SM does not make the 9 any more.
