nils master hand auger



I have a 8' Nils Master hand auger. Last year it cut great but now it takes way more work to cut holes. I can't see any nicks and it feels prety sharp. Do any of you know if these are too delicate? Can it be re- sharpend? The cutting system is different than my friends Strikemaster Laser. Seem as the Strikemaster is more durable. Please help me out with some info.

Even though the cutting edges on the head seem sharp, I would surprised if they were "shaving" sharp. A hole drilled one time in a some sand or dirt on the ice pretty much takes care of the shaving edge. At the St Paul ice show last Dec I asked the N-M rep about sharpening and his reply was "The importer here in the US is NOT set up at this time to exchange or sharpen the head." I doubt if any of the sharpening services in the Central states area can do it as it will take a special jig. I do know that auger is a lot more popular in the Eastern states and perhaps someone on a New York forum (hint) can help you. You might also try Niles Master direct but use the phone. E-mails don't always get answered.
