Eskimo Quickflip II - Anyone have one?

8 posts in this topic

I just picked one of these up for 150.00 brand new and got it assembled.
Not crazy about how small and shallow the sled is, but otherwise it seems to be a VERY nice house.

Just wondering if anyone else on here has one of these and what you like and or don't like about it and if you have any tips or tricks to share with me.

Thanks,
Jeremy

I saw these at Scheels here in Moorhead and was wondering how they would be also. I'm sure they are worth the $150.00. For that price, I don't think that you could go wrong.

M.I.M.,

Does this house have a door? Where did you purchase it at. I would like to take a look at one too. Does anybody know of a place in the twin cities that has them?

thanks

It has a D door in the front.
Not sure of the dimensions, but I will look tonight.
Drop me an email at JeremyP71@chartermi.net if you want.
I got it at Scheels in the Riverhills mall here in Mankato.

M.I.M.
Thanks for the help. It sounds like they sold a ton of them. I purchased one of a few they have left. You wouldn't happen to know the demensions of the box? I know odd question, truck is broke down and all I have is a hatchback. Just wanted to know what I was getting myself into if I try to stuff in the hatchback.

That might be pretty rough to do. Even taking everything out of the box might be a tough one to get eveything in a smaller car.

How soon before your truck is fixed? I guess I could pick it up if its paid for and they would let me take it and I could meet you someplace to give it to you later.
Email me if you need me to help you out.

Thanks for the offer M.I.M.-I got a buddy to run me down.
Maybe I'll see you on the ice.

Very good then.
I am "out and about" shoe shopping with the wife and little guy tonight, so I am sure I am stopping by Scheels to do some snooping with my 5 month old... don't need him corrupted by going to them shoe stores and such! ;-)

Good luck!

    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less.
