    2005 Wheelhouse Update

    Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.

    Ic Nuts

    absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e.

    Thick ice, go to auger gas or cordless

    I’ve had ions since they came out. 3-4-5 (memory isn’t what it used to be) years now and my Strikemaster hasn’t left the shed since. I take it out and run it a couple times a year and put it back. It owes me nothing so I’ll just leave it as is. I sure like the new Pistol Bit but the Ion is fine.
  4. 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it! Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?

    Hand Winch Covers

    Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
  6. Might as well get augers in on this too!

    Bluejays Everywhere!

    Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    Bluejays Everywhere!

    I have twice the bluejays around that I've ever seen before. Do these things migrate at all, not all the way south but maybe from Canada or further north to around Minnesota? They absolutely terrorize the other birds at the feeder, scaring them all away.

    Drum Brakes Or Disks?

    ST-flange is there. Without it I don’t think it would be possible. Defiantly not worth the price I have to believe.

    Drum Brakes Or Disks?

    I know that, I know also I should have put them on at the welder.It wasn't a shining moment for me.

    Drum Brakes Or Disks?

    I made a bad decision when my Miltona trailer was built in that I didn't have brakes put on. I'm about 4500#s loaded and it does pull great and stopping isn't a huge problem if I drive defensively but I'm really thinking i should add them. It looks to me that drums will be about $300 in parts to do.My brother and i will do the installation. I haven'd done much research on this except for friends telling me freeze up stories about drums. The wiring for the electric brakes is also a problem now that the house is on and I can't run the wires thru the walls. I would appreciate any insight you guys can give me.

    Headed south???

    I still see lots of migrating robins in pretty big groups, at least up to a day or so ago. Morning doves are plentiful, lots of what appears to be young ones as they are pretty small. Not many juncos,, I like watching them too.

    Ants, what do i do?

    Spraying the pole every couple weeks worked the best. Raid worked good but Terro was much better.

    Headed south???

    I've gone thru more nijer seed in the last month than I have used total in the last month. Not even sure whats hitting it. I had a bad summer with all the back problems I had so didn't get to watch the feeder as much as I have in the past. Hummers were non existent at my feeder this year, only saw a couple all summer. Safflower tube style feeder is going empty in about 3 days now.
