    Ice Augers

    Beaver15 If your auger is the 2HP model, your not alone. Myself and others have reported the lack of power problem and also many are hard starting and cold blooded, there is also a rewind issue. So proceed with caution before putting out the $$$ for this auger!

    icehouse heater that doesn't cause headache

    Timber; Venting is always key! If this is a perminant,or perm sleeper, than a fully vented heater, backed with some venting and a CO detector is the key. Think Safe! JIGLFIN;

    Jiffy: question on power / break-in

    Leech; Sounds like the auger has a lean condition. Try running with the choke in the middle detent during warm up, even into the first hole, until you see excessive smoking, than open the choke fully. If this improves the condition, you may need a carb. adjustment. Good Luck; JIGLFIN

    wall mounted fish house heater

    Have read some HORROR stories about heaters that obsorb oxygen and emit CO! So we Installed the Orbis "fully vented" heater in our sleeper unit and included a CO detector for peace of mind. Its a 15000 btu unit, heating an 8x12 house, which is more than enough, at -20. This is another consideration when purchasing. Good Luck; JIGLFIN

    How many times did you get out there?

    Gonna make it an even 10 to the big pond, if the ice holds for another week or so. Made 1 trip south toward pelican rapids, for crops and sunnies. Didn't make it to URL. tho would have liked to. Way the landing reports are sounding, may have to wait 9 months for that. It's been a tough bit, in general, but a good season. Good luck and be careful; JIGLFIN

    How to sharpen Auger Blades???

    bigminnow; If you are able to tru up the mora style blade, you should have no problem with the jiffy. Remove and clamp the blade securely, with the macined surface up. Using a new flat file, clean up that surface only, maintaining the original angle and your there! Good Luck and smooth augering JIGLFIN;
