  Ah yes another season has come and for all those wondering, yes I'm still sharpening Nils Master and Fin Bore ll blades.  With the warm temps I hope your all finding good ice.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you!

Frank, are the Nils blades interchangeable for all the drill models?  Wondering if I can put a red blade w/ power point on the orange auger?

 Yes, Nils Master blades will mount on any of the Nils augers of the same size   

New out of the box the Slick blades (black)  have a hair less bite to the ice then the Red blades.   Otherwise the biggest difference is only color. 


Sharpening will change the characteristics of the blade, after all your taking material off and altering it's profile.   The Nils Bud (head) was intended to be resharpened and reshaped.  If you were to only sharpen a Nils and send it out you could end up with a blade that isn't going to make someone happy.  There are factory tools for the final mount set for a new blade and they are spot on.   On ice testing allows me to make adjustments to a blade altered by sharpening and any other damage caused to the blade.

I do take into account the difference in cut between the Slick and standard Red when making adjustments.


 The 8" Red w/PowerPoints should cut like the standard Red.  The reason for the powerpoints is to aid in centering at start or possibly overlapping holes which I can't attest to.   Any Nils in good cutting condition should start a clean hole with no skip out. If there is any skip out you'll notice other undesirable quirks with it's cut as well.

Thanks! That's the reason I was inquiring.  I tried cutting overlapping holes and it was pretty much impossible.  You need a point to center and steady the auger to get the hole started. I think when I buy a new cutting head, I'll buy the 8' power point head.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
