      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

fixing broken auger pull string

Recommended Posts

My brother pulled too hard trying to start my auger and broke the string. I disassembled the top and re-tied the string but I can't get it to wind up right. It does not re-coil. I have a strikemaster lazer mag . I would rather not pay $45 to get it fixed. Any tips?

Most have a ribbon type recoil spring. When the rope broke that ribbon spring lost all of its tension. You will have to take apart the housing piece that it is in, recoil it and put it back in place. It is kinda hard to explain without you sitting next to me. It can be a pain but isn't that hard to do. Good luck.

Same thing happened to my strikemaster last week. Took it apart on Christmas and it is a real pain to wind the recoil. After my limit of five darn heimers I took it in and had someone else do it for $28.

Wahlberg If you put it together right you should have a little recoil but not enough to retract all the way. If thats the case you didn't preload the spring enough. Take it apart but leave the retaining screw on the spool. Take the handle off the rope and pull through the hole in the cover. You'll see a notch on outside rim of the spool. Get the rope in that notch and turn the spool, you should feel the tension increasing as you turn. Give it as many turns as you figure it needs the give it a try.

If you have no tension on the spring you have something wrong. You could have spooled the line the wrong direction. Or the center end of the spring isn't in the peg on the inside of the the spool. Or the outside end of the spring isn't connected to the case.
