I left mine on over the summer and now can't get the dang thing off the auger. I'm not sure if the metal contracted or what. I tried WD-40, but can't seem to get it to budge. Any suggestions for removal?

Put some penetrating oil on the stubborn connection (good stuff) and let it sit awhile. If that doesn't work, apply some heat to it to expand the metal around the screw. That should do it....(And good luck!)

Take your wife's blowdryer to it to heat it up and then put some non-flamable liquid wrench to it while it is still warm. This will draw the oil in and help loosen it.

Heat may be the only way? Try heating the bottom part only. Be cautious not to put stress on the seals on the gear box if you have to work with it still connected to the extension. You do not want to damage the seals!

Once you do get it off, and before you put it back on again, smear the ends with Anti-seize thread compound. That way it will not rust together and lock up between installations. (You can find a dab of anti-seize at any tool and die shop or at most parts stores.)

    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵

    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
