Auger Blade Sharperner

Recommended Posts

I looked back 12 pages, couldn't find a topic on this. I was wondering where I could get my blades sharpend. I've tried it my self but I don't think it's working too well. I live in Savage/Burnsville area wondering if theres anywhere in my area that does this.

Thanks

If they are old I would just replace them. Sharpening works, but is not as nice as new ones. Not too expensive either way.

If you have tried to sharpen them and it does't seem to be working it may be time to pick up a new set.

Depending on the brand, they may offer a trade-in on sharp recycled blades. They'll send you newly sharpened ones from someone else's auger, you send yours back, they sharpen em and repeat the process with someone else.

I would check with your local bait shop to see if they have an exchange program set up, this may be your best option.

dspohn, I brought the post I think you were looking for to the top. FM'er 'Surface Tension' may be up to the challenge.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
