Wow that does seem like a lot of work for a drill. ? would be how much life does it take out of your drill?

No way! I cant see not needing several batteries just to do one hole thru 16". Seems like a joke to me.

Dont get me wrong guys .. I'm a serious skeptic about everything new.. but I'm also very mehanically inclined and have some experience with robotics, and creating various items.

The drill shown in the picture (18V Ryobi)has decent torque and a pretty good battery life. The other drill mentioned was a 12V DeWalt(XRP assuming) which is another drill that will handle some serious work, and has a great battery life. It was specified to run at the low speed setting on the drill.. which is still cruising for a 5"-6" hole.

The auger shown is a lazer hand auger in a 5" diameter at 30 holes.. and a 6" was also mentioned at 22 and claimed to drill 22 holes.

I dont know if you guys have used a 5" lazer personally, but when the blades are sharp, they will turn with no effort.. a 6" isnt much different.

I believe their claims are possible, with a WARM, freshly charged battery cutting through clear ice(not old holes). With a 24V Dewalt Hammer Drill(extra handle for support) it likely wouldnt be any problem drilling out holes in a permanent with a lazer type auger with sharp blades.

This may be an item very well worth trying.. It should work well as long as your batteries are kept warm.

Saw that at e bay a while back. First question I had- won't that thing rip your hand off when you break through? You know sometimes how augers catch at the bottom of the hole?

I thought of that too.. thats why I made the comment on the hammer drill(takes 2 hands).

I never said the thing couldn't be hard on the wrist .. but my best guess is that it would work. My guess is one would have to lift up the auger and get the rpm's up when the auger sticks... I think we have all done that with gas augers... at least the drill has reverse if the auger gets wedged too bad.

I would also think the hand auger blades would get dull quicker than the *power lazer* blades. A person with one of these adapters may be better off with an 8" auger and a heavier drill so it can handle proper blades?

I guess its all theory, but it would be nice to have a *cordless* auger... one less small engine to tune every other year.

I have an old hand auger in the garage, I think I'll try to make an adapter and see if it works a all.

    •   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?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
