we just use sheet meatal screws in the lugs of our boots. Cheap to replaceeasy to install. Wife don't much like it when you forget to take them off when i come in the house though.

Below is a picture of RGfixit's boots. He put hex head screws in a few years ago. I put them in my sorels last year and they worked great. I used stainless steel hex heads that were (i think) 3/8" long.

I ran a broomball team years ago. I work in a manufacturing plant and a lot of the guys had never played before. There were only a few of us with broomball shoes. One of the new guys was extremely maneuverable on the ice for someone who just started and didn't own the shoes. After the first game one of the guys on our team clued me in that Brad had screwed 10-32 socket head cap screws into the bottom of his boots. That explained the rooster tail he was throwing as he ran.

Somebody in the Ontario CA area had this nifty invention to keep us from losing our ice fishing rods.  I might have to make a few.

It looks like that is the power head.  You would attach an auger blade to it as you would with a gas auger.

looks like he used an auto steering wheel for handles.wow what an invention!hats off to adipose.I would guestimate that the auger slides onto that exposed shaft that apears to be driven by the belt/pulley system up above.wow

hand warmer/stove I read in one of my fishing books years ago, seems like a good idear. Take a coffee can, put a roll of tp in it and fill 1/2 way with alcohol, let it soak then light the tp, to put it out put a pie pan or something similar over it.

OK here is a time saver. I transport my auger in two pieces. It sucked trying to put it together on cold days. So I now use a bolt longer than the orignal. I drill a clearance hole thru the nut so the bolt slides thru easy. I then wrap tape on the nut so the nut doesn't fall out of the recess where it fits (like a press fit). Once the bolt is thru the shafts and the nut I use a hitch pin to keep it from falling out (drill a hole thru the bolt at 90 degrees to its axis size for a small hitch pin). You can assemble and disassmble an auger in seconds. If you need a pic I'll take one and post.

Not sure its an invention but it sure beats screwing the auger together. I also made a nice stand for the powerhead out of wood. Two 2X6 laid side by side. Screw a third 2X6 in the middle of the other two on top of them. (like a pyramid) In the top 2x6 I drill a hole large enough to accept the augers powerhead shaft. Two screw eyes below the handles and a couple of bungies and walla. The power head stays verticle (which in my case helps with easy starting) nice way to transport without leaking or spilling fuel.

OK here they are, sorry for the delay.
Note: stand is now made from (1) 2X10 not (2) 2X6's layed side by side. I needed to remake due to fuel contamination on the wood and didn't have 2X6's long enough. So I made from a single 2X10. A little more tippy but does the job.

I made a siren tip-up with my son for the science fair.  Bought a big switch and a siren at Radio Shack, mounted it on the end of the tip up by the flag with a bent piece of aluminum and took an old broken smoke alarm apart for the piece of plastic that holds a 9 volt battery.  When the flag goes up it triggers the switch and she screams like a banshee.  Only problem is that the siren I got is almost TOO loud!   No more missing the flag while in the shack however. :)
