Do you think this would work?

67 posts in this topic

I was wondering if one of these would work to clean out the spear hole ie 2 ~ 6 inches of ice.

It would be nice if it would. I have several batteries at home and it seems like it would be a nice clean way to open up the hole.

Lots of people use chain saws to cut spear holes. Just don't use any chain oil or your hole will be filmed over.

Melted ice and electrical components don't mix. Do you have a warranty?

I have a Fish Toys ice saw too, but when it is unfolded it is too tall for my fish house (it hits the ceiling). I spoke (I think electronically) to Fish Toys last year about making a interchangeable handle and he said it would be difficult for him to do (alignment issues with existing saws).

So that has become another one of my summer projects.

I will make a replacement interchangeable handle that will look something like this.

I will post pics when I am done. (I am thinking September ~October timeframe)

I have never seen anyone cut the hole from inside the house. Just cut the hole and slide the house over the hole when you are done. Sounds like you are making too much work out of this.

Doesn't that get a lot of chain oil in the water?

you don't put oil in the saw when cutting ice. Most guys have a separate chain saw just for spearing.

I don't see the point in this saw, I will agree that Fish Toys saws are still the best!!! For the money you spend on this saw it wouldn't get used enough i don't think. Look at when we had our Get the Gator last year, there was way to much ice to use it then. I think this year BNS and Myself will make a video using fish toys saws, for all our fellow FM'ers!!!! grin

That thing is kind of cool!!! I agree with BNS about caring the thing around but the biggest thing i don't like to do is push the box under that ice.

    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.

    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
