My new Toy

14 posts in this topic

Finally broke down and bought one after hearing all the good things about it. Oh and had to have one for the GTG I got it for 117.00 with tax.

I noticed that the saw has a bit of a bow to it. Is this normal by chance??

Yea it’s normal to have a slight bow in them. Some of it is memory from being on a large coil. Some of it comes from when I put the curf in the teeth. If it isn’t much it straightens out when it’s being used. If you think it’s too much you can hold the handle and have the point anchored and lightly push the blade with your foot where you think it’s the worst. Be careful and don’t push to hard being it’s only 3/16 material. Do real light pushing till you get it straightened out. Another little hint when you are done using the Icesaw for the season hang it on something by the pin hole in the end of the blade. If it is leaning against a wall the blade will slowly curve towards the wall. Funny material.

Where did you pickup the Icesaw. What if you are the lucky one and win smile the one at the SGT?

It may bend while trimming around a seasoned hole. Just cut in the opposite direction of the bow next time to straighten it out.Can you imagine my grandpa only used a chisel and wasn't afraid of moving this late in the year.

Hey Fish Toys, ever considered making a model of your saw that is at least foot longer? The ice is getting too thick up here for the saw, and I hate the thought of drilling lots of holes, spud barring the points, and shoveling all that slush. grin

darkhousefisher a few years ago I made some with a 60” blade and 15 teeth. They took a lot more time to make and were very difficult to ship. With the 3/16 material they weren’t very strong for the length of the blade. Most of them did go to AK tho.

Send me an email at wbenbo@gvtel.com

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
