Banking House and Re-Drilling Holes

Recommended Posts

Any ideas on banking around a permanent house. Seeing as there is almost no snow on the lake, what do you guys do? Also my double bladed auger jumps around when I try to re-drill my holes. I have to take a chisel most of the time to open them back up. Any ideas here to help.. Thanks for the help

When there is no snow I just drill a lot of holes and use the slush from them to bank it. The auger jumping around not sure about I have a Jiffy and it opens them just like drilling a new hole.

This weekend, I used my 4 wheeler trailer, hooked it up to the 4 wheeler and ran to shore. Then I shovled up some snow and trailered it back to my house.

You do what you gotta do to bank the house, It can be a pain. As far as re-drilling, I think the key is to drill as vertical as possible each time.

Does your auger have a center point? My old Strikemaster Lazer bit (with 2 blades) did not have a center point and I bounced all over the fishhouse trying to reopen holes. Bought a new bit with the center point and reopening is a breeze now.

As far as banking goes, I usually drill a bunch of holes and use the slush to bank things up. That works when there is no snow around.

Concerning re-drilling holes, buy a strikemaster. grin.gif
