      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 .

Jiffy replacement blades.

Recommended Posts

Well after three years of use on my Jiffy, my blades are about as dull as a bread knife. I have heard it is very hard to sharpen auger blades, just wondering how much a replacement chipper blade for my 10" would cost.

A single chipper blade costs less to replace than the two- or three-blade systems. But check with you local stores to see if they have an auger blade exchange program. That means you give them your blade and, for about half the price or a little more of a new blade, they sell you a used blade sharpened at the factory to factory specs.

But chipper blades are easy to sharpen, because they are flat. Likely there's some local business that sharpens them, or you can do it yourself.

If you turn your used blades in, thats what you get back not usually new ones. The used ones are resharpend but if your going to burn your blades for three years whats ten buck a year for a new set?

For the jiffy ice chipper blades they are easy to sharpen like others have said.I use a chop saw to sharpen mine.Use caution!but i turn it on and lock it so it stays on,then useing the sides of the chop saw blades i line my blade up at the propper angle and carefully put it next to the chop saw blade.just make sure it is the thicker blade on the chop saw and not the thinner ones,with very light even pressure it will give you a nice cleen edge!

sorry if there was confusion about the chop saw,its the metal cutting chop saw i was refering to with the abrasive blade.I use the flat side of the blade on it.it puts a nice straight edge on your auger blade that way as opossed to making passes on a round grind stone.If your not used to working around a metal chop saw then i wouldnt try this method.

Thanks for the tip BW Eddy. I touched up my blades using your instructions on Friday night. My Jiffy was still cutting good, but I figured it couldn't hurt. On Saturday I took it out and it cut even better. It was like having new blades. Your tip regarding the center pick blade helped my brother out. His blades were very sharp but his auger still wouldn't cut. After sharpening the center blade, it cuts great.

Thanks again -
