      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 .

Loose auger head

Recommended Posts

I tightened the bolt on my strikemaster auger as tight as I could but it still seems that the shaft and head are wobbly so that the shaft can move a few inches in an direction. What can I do to tighten this up?

Thanks

That is reassuring and I guess it still works good besides my dull blades but thats all fixed now. It just seems like that would make it loose power and not be as efficient at drilling

On the older Strike Masters there was a tolerance issue with the slip ring on the output side of the gear box. These are older augers before all of the plastic handles. If this is the age of your auger you can send it into Strike master to a new output shaft/gear installed or you can just watch it. As long as you do not have grinding in the gearbox or the slip ring does not break, you should be in good shape.
