Will Strikemaster sharpen blades?

6 posts in this topic

I've got a Strikemaster XL-3000 with the power point and 10-inch blades. Just trashed a set of blades on some grit in the ice, blush.gif and put on a spare set I sharpened myself because nobody has the sharpener to sharpen those Strikemaster blades to a factory angle.

Does anybody know if Strikemaster will sharpen them if I send them back to the factory? I've got three sets.

Look at their HSOforum under online catalog. They get 15.00/set plus 5.00 shipping for the 3 sets. So, $50 plus the shipping costs to them looks like your total.

I take that back. Those prices were for the hand auger blades. Power auger blades are $20 per set plus shipping.

I called StrikeMaster awhile back they sent me a new set for my 10'' 'cause I couldn't find them anywhere. 48 hours I had them in the mail. They also exchange your used,dull blades just mail them in and you get a new set I was told. I think it was about 20 bucks ,exchange set is just blades ,no screws etc. Was very happy with their service.

Just got my e-mail reply from Strikemaster. They don't sharpen blades. They'll sell me a reconditioned set for my 10-inch XL-3000 for $19.99 plus shipping. I can find new ones in Duluth for $27.99, which is only a couple bucks more and there's no hassle.

But the good news is, I drilled 50 holes today with an older set of blades that I'd hand sharpened with a whetstone. They are sharp enough to shave hair off my arm. They cut as well as new blades, so I think I'll just keep touching up my three sets of spare blades and switch them out whenever one set dulls.

How dumb of me not to have one of those spare sets in my gear last night while out pouting. blush.gif Would have saved using the hand auger, puff puff.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
