Icesaw Angling Hole

16 posts in this topic

Received this today. grin You should post the picture I've attached to this email. That hole was cut with my saw yesterday - that's as clean as an auger hole and I cut at least a half-dozen of them. That's 11 inches of ice. Didn't need an auger to cut the pilot hole either! smile I sure like these compliments.

When you start a hole for the saw, you will go thru ice faster with Fish's saw than you will with a regular chisel, just chip away gently with the tip of the saw, you'll be suprised.

Fish’s Folding Ice Saw Directions

When you fold the saw in or out, make sure there is no pressure on the locking pin. To remove the pin, move the blade towards or away from the handle to take any pressure off and turn it left & right to pull it out. To start chipping, lock the saw in the open position, place about a 45 degree angle in front of you with the teeth facing you and start chipping lightly in the same hole. Once through the ice, cut straight up and down. When you decide what size and shape hole you want, turn the saw handle as you are cutting in the direction you wish to cut. Keep the bolts in the handle & the hinge rivet tight. Be careful this Icesaw is very sharp! The saw will last for years if used in a normal & safe way. Do not cut into any abrasive or foreign objects on or in the ice. When walking on thin or questionable ice, have the Icesaw at a 45 angle in front of you as you are walking, chipping as you go. If it goes through in 1 normal chip the ice is too thin! We also recommend putting a rust protector on the teeth for storage or long periods of non-use.

About 10 inches of ice is pretty easy to chip thru and after that the ice chips stay in the hole and have to be cleaned out to keep chipping or it keeps packing the chips in the hole. For the spearing holes in thicker ice most people auger a pilot hole or the four corners and cut in-between them with the Icesaw.

If possible go to one of the spearing get together and see one in action or try it yourself. There are thousands of the blue blade Icesaws out there!

I understand the augering out when it is thicker but did you just chip a hole to start the round hole? Also how big was the hole 9 inch or so? thanks

He didn’t tell me the size of the hole. He chipped thru with the Icesaw. He also said he caught tons of blue gills. The weather changed for the worse so he went home.

I know it has worked great for reopening the spear hole after not going out for a day or so.

My nephew made a video of himself cutting with the Icesaw. He started to chip with the Icesaw to straight so it didn’t chip like it should but it gets the point across of how to chip and cut. Next should be a spearing hole.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
