Lazer Synthetic vs regular Lazer hand auger

5 posts in this topic

So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.

The Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene is roto-molded into a streamlined form to reduce both drag and friction. This reduction helps you shave nearly 1/10th of a second off of your average per/hole time.......

I've never seen anyone use the lazer synthetic. From what I can tell/researched the lazer synthetic uses a polyurethane molded cutting head that the blades mount on. I guess it is supose to be better since it can't/won't get bent like a lazer auger where the blades are mounted directly to the metal. If the metal gets bent it throws the blade pitch off and causes a lot of issues trying to cut. 


The price they have on them is just stupid. The weight difference compared to the normal hand auger is like 1lb or less. If a guy wants to have an auger with the poly molded cutting head just look up Thunder Bay augers. Amazon was selling them for $59 for an 8in with a poly molded cutting head that the blades mount to.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
