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.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.
