Rico you have the laser auger don't you? I get two or three years out of a set on mine, then just replace just a thought.

I have a student whose dad can sharpen about any spoon, drill or auger, he lives just north of Kendallville.  Its a ways for you.  the Angler in Helmer will trade blades, he sharpens for them too.  I bought an extra set and then usually have a sharp set on hand.  What size do you have.  I think I have a new 5" set around someone gave me I don't need, mine is a 6 "

no jigginstick i cant afford one of those "cadillacs"! i have a 15 year-old 6'' mora.  so those 5" blades wont fit goggleye.  i have about 5 sets of blades, so i only get them sharpened about every three years or so and every once in a while i buy a new set.  north of kendallville huh?  i was looking for something a little closer to me, you know down here in God's country where the men are men and the sheep run scared :o

Hey I thought we were talking lazers for some reason - I have a number of sets of sharpened moras.  Dad passed away about a month ago and I inherited about 12 sets of 6 inch mora blades.  When we meet up at the honey hole or some place I could trade you a couple of sets for some dull ones.  Let me know - As of last count I have a lazer, 3 moras and 4 spoon augers and two spud bars ;D

I have a buddy who does his own with one of thoes WEN wet wheel grinders it really works well. He has sharpened some for me and other people too, if you have one or know some one who does they do a great job, easy does it! You just want to touch them up!
There is nothing in the world I'd rather do than ice fish!

There's an old guy in Peru they call Grizzly, he lives over by the hospital.  He used to be able to sharpen any kind of augers.  When I lived down in 12 Mile he sharpened some spoons for me and did a great job.

My aunt by marrage parents used to live in the A-frame on the one end of the lake. I went up for a couple of days fishing with him, had
a great time. Now he has passed and his great-grandson is playing
football for Logansport tonight against Dwenger.
