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.

Ed -

Thanks -

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

    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54" in the order of the pictures. Have a look!
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref
