jiffy 30

Recommended Posts

I was looking at new augers the other day and was wondering about putting the stealth blades on the regular jiffy. Has anyone looked in to this or done it? The way it looked is that the stealth was the same auger but with the 2 small blades off of the center point. The point looks to be the same on both of them minus the holes. i am just curious to hear opinions.

I've thought about it, but for the cost of the new blades I'll keep using my old style ones and have a file handy.

I have been messing with blades on a jiffy , eskimo , strikemaster the last few years . The chipper blades may be slower by a few seconds but if you want a clean straight hole ,less hassle and the ability to sharpen yourself in my humble opinion stick with the chipper blades . the lazers are scary fast but to me not worth the trouble and cost.

I use the Lansky stones in my knife sharpening kit . Use them free hand with a little honing oil go from course medium and fine you just have to make sure you don't change the angles . Less honing on the flat that is the last stage , I am still on the oringal blade it's a jiffy 30 with a Tech have a spare blade have yet to use it . Hope this helps .

bigblue i believe you are mistaking what im talking about. the regular jiffy and the jiffy stealth are both chipper style blades. the jiffy stealth has 2 extra blades off from the center point, with a total of 3 blades, with the original having just the one.

But anyways I'm wondering if anybody notices a difference in cut times between the two styles of augers. can anyone compare the two for me?

I know about the blades you mentioned . I put my two cents in comparing chippers to the lazers to me it's mostly about the amount of time it takes to cut a hole I personally don't need the speed and the cost involved with lazer blades or the super chippers . But it sure looks like a bolt on swap if you go for it let us know how it works out . Good Fishing.

I have a stealth and it flies. I have a 2hp tecumseh and a model 30 for it. Have not sharpened or replaced the blades yet after only a year I expect to go a long time. I would call jiffy for fun and ask if you could just drill it out and buy the blades from fleet farm. Or go measure how far down the tip blades go and do it. BTW it is a 5 blade system with the center point.

For what its worth my 10 year old jiffy 35 with the standard chipper blade can cut circles around my boss's new pro4 stx. The stx is nice when you get to the bottom of the hole it doesn't hang up at all.

A well tuned model 30 with sharp blades can really rip some holes. My dads buddy bought a new blade for his 25 to 30 yr old jiffy 30 and it still didn't cut that great. Then he tool his blade back off and held the belt sander keeping the same angle on the center point. That thing will hold its own. He has never done so much as a carb kit to it. He said it used to be work to drill a few holes. Now he pops 6 or 7 like nothing loves his like brand new 30 yr old drill. wink

    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
