    reelmanly Set The HOOK!!!!!!!!

    Went to Harbor Frieght, had augers on sale for $189.00, Nitro and I halfed it, He took it, offed the dirt shaft and took a hand ice auger did his "magic" and we now have a lightweight power auger and it worked like a Charm on Indian yesterday, 9 holes drilled just like that no pain no strain, ice was about 3-3 and a half thick and we dont anticipate any probs with 4-6" bases. Made me Happy, Gettin to old to be standin there hand crankin.
  2. Sounds like a great idea. Could you post a couple pictures?

  3. We did the same thing a couple of years ago. I work in a machine shop so just made a shaft to fit the auger and powerhead. Shortdrift I could make you one up if I have the dimensions of what you need. I'll see if I can get some pics. Also made an adapter so we can use the cordless drill.
