Lazer Auger/Red Knob

Discussion in 'Hard Water Discussions' started by Buckeye Mike, Feb 4, 2008.

  1. Was using my Lazer hand auger yesterday, and the red knob at the top of the shaft came off. And every time i drill a hole the knob comes off in my hand.
    Wood knob is not cracked, i just think the spring clip inside the knob just lost its cripping power.
    Has anyone else had this happen, and how did you fix it.
    Lazer is only 5 or6 years old, and still in good shape.

    Yea i know, ice is going fast, but would like to get it fixed, just in case it stays around. THANKS
     
  2. Had that happen to my brother in law last year. You can buy a new one for like $12 or do with out like he does.....................Rich
     

  3. Yea got an e-mail back from Strike Master, the knob is 12.50 + shipping.

    But i think i found a way to fix it, just took 1 wrap of electrisoin tape around the shaft, at the channel were the knob snaps in, put the knob on and gave it a good wack with the hammer. Will see how long it lasts.
     
  4. I would hold out and check some of the nicer bait shops. I've seen replacements there. You would save on the shipping then.
