  1. Would be nice if the wind blew and blew some of the snow off the lakes, so they can freeze faster.
  2. Looks like the temps will be down below zero so will me making ice all day and night. But only time will tell.
  3. With the recent storm on Saturday, how much snow do you have on your lakes and how much ice did you have before the snow. In S.E.N.D. the lakes had 4 to 5 inches of snow. Now most lakes have over a foot of snow. Which means lots of slush. What do you have
  4. Im a machinist and seen lots of bent stuff. And fixed lots of them. Yes them grade 8 bolts have shear strength. I have seen 2 inch stub shafts bend on fishhouses.. Your house will weight 1800 lbs then add all the stuff you put in it and your up to 2300 lbs easy. Then bounce across a lake and the top of the house is swaying one to two feet back and forth. Pulling a house across the lake is hard on them. After welding on them and getting them red hot will take a lot of the strength out of them.
  5. Im looking at your stub shaft or pivot shaft. They look real light to me. We have always ran a shaft from one side to the other and it was a 2 inch shaft with 5 .5 inch sticking out. Very little chance it will bend. A loaded house going down a plowed lake road gets pretty rough. Just my 2 cents
  6. I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.

    Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that. Thanks
  9. I was at the Scheels icefest in Nov and looked at them. Show special 579.00 with a free 2nd battery and 50.00 scheels gift card. I asked them how they compare to a Ion. He said, I wont run them so I dont know. Now I have two Ion's and think there great. I went over to the Ion booth and asked them how does your compare to a Jiffy. He said same battery, we turn slower and differnt color. Then said And I like it, its all personal choice. I going to stick with the Ions
  10. Im sure my house is like all of your house's They could do a commerical with all there products in are house's. Yes made in the USA is great.
  11. I have the catch covers just havent cut them down yet. Catch covers will be at the Fargo N.D. ice show and hoping to get in on the by 3 get one free like at the Scheels ice fest back in Nov. I need to stock uo on some other products of theres. You cant beat there warranty.
  12. For those of you that use the sleeves what seem to be the magic length when cutting them down? And do you block up your house? I never block my house as I never leave it on the ice when I leave.

    Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill. I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch. Are they worth the money??
  14. The grooves I think helps alot. Keeps 75% of the grease on the shaft. But I think the anti seize grease helps more. I had a frame about 6 yrs ago that the pivot point seized up and I had a hell of a time getting them apart. It took me about 6 hr to get them both a part. I used my 4 wheeler and winch and hooked a nylon sling to the pivot point and tightened the winch real tight and then would move the axle system up and down. You only let that happen once. Trust me
  15. When I get my frames one of the first things I do is pull the Pivot tube off the stub shaft and grind grooves in the stub shafts and apply Permatex Anti seize grease. Its not effected by temperature and every other yr when I take them apart, the grease isnt just a black solid mess. I just clean with a little bit of brake cleaner and reapply the anti seize.
