      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Ice King Auger missing blade "Help"

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any info on Ice King Power Ice Augers? I have an older one in great shape. Not sure how hold. Model # 1111. 8 inch, 3hp. I am looking for a replacement blade and having no luck. The sticker on the auger says "to order replacement parts contact Quality Tool and Manufacturing Inc. P.O. Box 458 Watertown, WI." I can not find anything anywhere about Ice King Augers or Quality Tool and Manufacturing. I am guessing that they have been out of business for a while. Are there other blades that could/would replace this one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.

I also have a ice king, same model number but I have not been able to find any blades either. If you do end up finding some, please post where.

I got tired of trying to find a blade made for this auger, so I went to Fleet Farm tonight and found the closest match which was the 9" Jiffy Ripper blade. The holes don't line up pefectly but they are very close, I had to ream out the holes on the auger a little bit and grind an angle into the corner of the blade to match the old blade. It will cut good if you just bolt it on and go, but it binds up pretty good when you get almost through the ice, this is because the Jiffy blade has an angle to it where the ice king blade is flat. So the cheap and easy fix I came up with is to take a 5mm allen wrench and cut off the end of it so it is just a straight piece of metal, you then put your bolts loosely into the blade and auger, next you take your cut allen wrench and put it in between the blade and auger and push it in so it is pressed against the bolts lengthwise, finally tighten your bolts and you are good to go. I tried a few different size allen wrenches and 5 mm was the best fit, I put a straight edge on the bottom of the blade and lined it up with the bottom of the auger to figure the angle for the blade. Worked just like new for me!! Good luck!
