I did a search and couldn't find out who does the blade sharpening? Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Does anyone know if there is a different blade assembly for the hand auger and power auger? I tried the hand auger attachment arm the other night and couldn't cut for [PoorWordUsage]. It never seemed to get started. Any help on this would be great.

Thanks,

Just a heads up, the Nils hand auger is a two handed motion, one in a little circle, the other in a larger circle. That might be your problem?

It takes a little time to get used to, but once you have it down, it's a breeze to make swiss cheese out of early ice.

There is two different cutting heads, but I don't think that is the issue. I have the standard cutting head on mine, and it cuts just as great in either the hand or powered configuration. The center point blade serves to drill a point for the main blade. I don't have exp using this one....

Sounds like you need a sharpening.

I don't know where you purchased it but I have heard of some that were sold in the back room of Cabelas in the bargin cave that were returns that had bent auger shafts. I don't know this is your problem but if the tip is new, it could be the issue.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
