sharpening Ice Saw??

Recommended Posts

Hey Fish's Ice Saw owners how do you know its time to sharpen your saw? I moved my house today since my current lake went down hill and had to cut a new hole. The saw really seemed hard to push through or down and I'm just wondering if it pays to touch up the tips has anybody done this on there own or should I spend the money and send it in?

Cutting a 4x2' hole 20" thick sure was a real treat even when I cut most of the hole with the auger....talk about cardio, whew!!!

I would send it in. Get it done right and it should be good for several more years.

Quite often they aren't "dull" the teeth are just bent out of position. The guys that build them can get them true again.

We had a new saw today and cut three holes and it was a cardio. My saw is due to be sharpened too.

We didn't use my saw today because mine is getting dull,and when the ice gets thicker like it is it's a work out. I typically drill more holes with the auger before cutting too.

I also drill more holes... but then there is more slush to scoop out.... it gets ya either way. smile

Fish ( Wayne ) is out of Winger, about 50 miles north of Detroit Lakes on Hwy 59. Here's his phone number: (218) 945-3699

Hope he's not TOO busy, his Icesaw got a mention ( with picture ) in the latest issue of Field and Stream.

Used the saw again this weekend up on Leech to sight fish for perch and I just think its the thick ice making it so hard to cut we had about 24"...ugh! I might cut one more hole this year with it and send it up to Wayne in the off season.

Thanks for all the responses.
