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.

I was just wondering if anyone tried a cordless rechargeable chainsaw.

Would it have enough umph to work?

Ice is probably easier to cut than wood.

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.

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.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
