Auger ? -- bent blade

3 posts in this topic

OK guys... my auger took a beating fishing the backwaters of the Miss this weekend.

The shaft is OK... but a couple blades up towards the top got a little bent. The cutting blades are fine.
Is she still useable? I figure the only benefit the blades further up offer is better cleaning and movement of the ice up and out of the hole.

Thoughts?

The screw is to remove ice chips from the hole. It should be fine.

I bend mine up pretty bad. that was 3 years ago. I don't even notice the difference. I did staighten it with a large channel lock pliers as best as possible. Don't worry about a thing. OH yeah...when drilling two holes close together so as to connect then, be careful to keep the auger straight wink.gif That was my mistake. I am glad nobody was there to see my hands slip off the handles and see me get slammed in the gut smile.gif
