Oak Runners For Fish Shack

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of oak runners for my fish house? I was looking for two runners 4"x6"x18'. I am in the metro area, but will be installing them up at Mille Lacs. Thanks.

Yikes! They'll be expensive!

Several years ago I has some 5 inch square by 16 foot long skids made by a small local sawmill. It cost me 35 bucks for the pair. I lag bolted them to the house with angle iron, and they worked very well.

Put some UHMW plastic sheet material on the bottom of them, and they will slide great on snow and ice, and the skids should last forever.

Maybe there are some small local sawmills up there that can help you out.

Try the lumber yard in Jordan,MN. I had the same size made 10 years ago made of white oak. Sold the shack since then, but the runners are like brand new. I think I paid less than 100 clams for the pair.

Hoovey,

There are several sawmills in the Mille Lacs
area, do a yellow pages search, you'll find a bunch. I think there is one just outside Isle. 18'is gonna cost ya plenty

You might save some money using tamarack. Nearly as hard and wears like iron. There's a sawmill just south of Baudette that usually has some runners.

There is a small Lumber Yard right across the street from Johnson's Portside on the East side of the lake. They have skids there cut in different lengths. Not sure how much they cost.

    • 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!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   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.
