Blade interchangeable?
« on: Jan 21, 2011, 10:37 AM »
OK, so here is what I know,  Finbore III, Eskimo, and Strikemaster laser "handaugers" all use the same style/shape/design of blades, and they are not serated, Can new mora blades be used on all models?    Next... the Powered Finbore (w\husky engine), Older Eskimo with Tubro BB8 blades and, Strikemaster Laser power auger  are all the same style/shape/design of blades as well.... they are also the same as the HAND AUGERS,  BUT they are serated,   my question to you is can I use the cheaper NON SERATED blades from the hand auger on my Eskimo Mako Power Auger, or do they have to be the serated type,  the smooth hand auger blades will fit, I just dont want to break anything.    ;)

I'm not sure about the smooth on power augers. I guess if it fits and cuts it should work.

I do know mora blades will not work on lazers.

The Finbore III and SM Lazer hand auger blades are interchangalbe. I know the power auger blades for the SM are serrated however I don't know if the hole spacing or the cutting angles are the same as the hand auger blades.

I just got an update from STRIKEMASTER, this is what they said in an email

Quote
We do not know if you can use our blades on the Eskimo and Finbore III model augers.  We have no idea if the bolt holes will line up. On our augers, you can use the Lazer hand auger blades on the power auger drill units.


Sincerely,
 
Strikemaster Corp.

So I'll try using the Finbore "MORA" smooth hand auger blades, on my eskimo BB8 auger,  I'll let ya know how it goes.  with that said,  this is what I got in an email from Eskimo...

Quote
[The hand auger blades which are not serated do not work on the power auger blades which must be serated to cut properly.
 
The Swedish Mora blades can be used on multiple brands, but I donít which one.  They fit our Eskimo hand augers.
 
I hope this answers your questions.  If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
 
Sincerely, Sherry

I think Eskimo just wants me to buy the WAYYY more expensive serated blades for my power auger,  I'll see how the smooth oes cut

Just to make sure there is no confusion. The mora blades on the fin bore are actually Mora Of Sweden blades, not strikemaster mora hand auger blades. Do not get these confused. To my knowledge the blades on the Eskimo hand augers are strikemaster mora style, so strikemaster mora hand auger blades will work. The Mora of Sweden blades on the lazer augers will not fit the Eskimo.

Mora of sweden is a company that makes blades for many companies.

Ummm  now you confused me.  I believe the blades on the Strikemaster laser auger WILL fit my eskimo power auger,  Eskimo has augers that use 2 types of blades, the "quantum" style, which is the same as Strikemasters MORA blades, or here in canada Normarks "Swedebore" blades, then Eskimo has the "turbo" blades which is the same as strikemasters Laser blades, or  Normarks Fin bore III blades

Eskimo makes both styles,  just like Strikemaster, and just like Normark

Lazer blades will work on the eskimo barracuda hand augers that come  with the "turbo cut" blades.....
