Good auger tip

Recommended Posts

You know that little black rubber strap that holds the protective cover on the end of your auger? You can purchase them from Strikemaster, 2 for $5.95, BUT they charge you over $6 for shipping. If you call the company directly and ask about them they will ship them out USPS for about a $1.50. Good way to save a few bucks.

I just saw the same straps from Jiffy for $5.95 a pair at MIlls Fleet farm. I am sure that these straps fit most of the auger covers made out there.

here's a tip to prevent loosing them, probly have to drill a hole but put a screw across the slot where the rubber strap hooks to the cover, to hold one end of the strap permanently on the protective cover.

Ive done this on my jiffys and have never lost one.

Spin some electrical tape around one end, that will keep the "Rubber-snubber" in place. If that looks too shabby for your taste, then Spin on one wrap of tape then dip the one end in Plasti-Dip that is used for tools handles.(Allow to dry and dip a second coat) That will coat the end and keep the snubber firmly in place.

Works well too if one end cracks and the snubber will not stay put. Solves two problems at one.

I bought about one foot of bungee cord when the black rubber strap that came with the auger broke. Tie a knot into each end of the bungee...waalaa!!

I'll have to second marmot's plan. I purchased a bungee and secured one end to the cap with a small bolt and washer, then to the other end I put a piece the holds your door open (the piece that keeps the cylinder from coming back). The one end of this is T shaped so I made a slot in the other end of the cap with a drill and now it never comes off unless I want it to.

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
