Jiffy Stealth...bass akwerds!

6 posts in this topic

I love my Jiffy! It is on it's third winter and does a great job. I have punched at least 100 holes already this year with it.

My brand new 2HP-8" Jiffy Stealth turns counter-clockwise! I almost was ready to bring it back when I noticed that the blades were mounted to cut that way. I had always used Strikemaster augers in the past and I know they turn clockwise. I guess the engineers at Jiffy didn't want anyone putting Lazer lower units on their powerheads. (By the way, I love the auger!)

Jiffy/Feldmann Engineering always has ran their gearbox's in that manor. They feel it imposes less wear on the drive that way.

Tecumseh makes Jiffy engines to their exclusive specification, and they have been the engine supplier since Feldmann Engineering invented the power ice drill and began selling it in 1951.

Jiffy still designs and manufactures everything else themselves, including the gearbox, drills, blades and accessories!

That's the reason why they say, "We Put The World on Ice.™"!, it's because they did.

So as I see it, it's the rest of the ice auger world that is kinda backward.

Yep the always spin backward from the others. Like Eddy said they have been doing it like that since 1951. So it wasn't done like that to keep people from putting strikemaster bits on a jiffy because they have been around longer. The steaths are a great auger and I love mine just about the best thing that I bought this past year.

I just received a 2hp 8 inch Jiffy Stealth for Christmas and have a question for anyone that can help. My concern is when I give it gas the auger seems to engage very quickly and almost with a bang. My old model thirty seemed to engage smoothly and work up to full speed. The stealth runs and cuts great, but I'm wondering if the way mine is engaging is going to be hard on the gearbox. Do I need to be concerned or will this get better when it's broke in a bit more.

    • Awesome pictures!!!
    •   StephenRamon, Welcome to the forum. Which did you think was Great? Putting the screws in boots or ATV tires? 
    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
