Jiffy replacement blades.

16 posts in this topic

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.

I paid $30 for a set of 10 inch, but at a local bait shop. Probobly cheaper if you shoped around.

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!

Jiffy blades are a snap to sharpen. Check my article on the home page, that should help you.

It is called "The Razors Edge in a "Jiffy".

Second article on the FM.com home page, center panel.

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 -

ScottO

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
