last fall i changed out the clutch shoes and drive cup in my old jiffy . seems twice as loud. but no slipage.

My Biggest worry is that when I'm dead and gone, my wife will sell my gear for what i said i paid for it.

my auger is brand new just got it in the mail yesterday...the shaft on the power head was hanging out of the box when it was delivered so that shaft was banging on every floor it was set down....so im guessing it got slammed down and damaged the tranny

bz....shouldn't be any noise from those gears..don't know where you ordered it from, but shipping company/seller is liable for that. Call who you ordered it from, and tell them ASAP. If that doesn't work, call Eva at Eskimo @ 1 800 345 6007, ext 146, and tell her about this.
It's NOT right....let us know what happens.

I am looking forward to ice, but don't have the fever quite yet. My big boat is still in the water. I don't want to wish that away, but after that, watch out. I am looking at things, update shanty's and buying other stuff right now.

I started getting a little fever about a week ago when I could feel the humiditiy drop.
It got a lot worse when I woke up this morning!  ;D
I moved a little north a year ago and I couldn't be more pumped for this season!
I've discovered some killer early ice prospects hiking these woods up here.  ;)
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

Yep I got ice fever big time.  I touched up the paint on my auger bit, waxed it, and am going to give my tip-ups a few coats of polyurathane.  In between surfin this site and checking out some of the equipment sites.

After a garbage winter last year, I have the itch more than ever.  Hopefully it is a cold one this winter.

I got one, but your the guy that gets the big ones , me and the snag are just happy getting a limit of keepers

Gamble the season may have been short, but the eye bite was smoking hot i can't remember a season being so hot and as soon as it reopened they were still on fire right up until 3 weeks ago, due to the bait explosion , but maybe the bite will be a little more normal this winter  and a little thicker ice , i hope so

I've had the fever since I got new blades for the gas auger and never used them!!! They are still in the package. Hope the ice is a lot thicker than last year

My wife thinks the same way! She was shaking her head when I pulled out the wheelhouse last week and started to remodel it!
