Read a few threads on this forum and others back home were guys had to rescue their auger bit after it came off their electric drill and when down the hole. One fella here posted his frisbee wasn't able to stop his from going down the hole, to thin & broke through. I'm considering cutting a disk for my 10" StrikeMaster out of a poly kitchen cutting board.  Seen this example from a fellow who used a 3d printer & custom mfg one.  I like the idea of being able to grab the disk and lift the auger up vs using the drill & handle.

Looking for some novel idea's, what have you garage engineered for a disk/stopper ?

Cheers

I modded my 8" Lazer Hand Auger with a Golf Frisbee Disc. It was about 9" in diameter, drilled a hole in it and used a piece of pvc 1" pipe hose clamped above and below it on shaft to keep it from going up or down. Worked ok. Would have kept me from loosing my Auger down the hole. Upgraded to a Kdrill and have taken all that off my Lazer hand Auger.

Made two one out of a pie plate/pan..not so great ..then another one from a 5 gallon bucket lid for my SM 6" Lazer ....then I got the 8" K-Drill and that's my story.

You might be able to start a little business with that.

Fisherman1 .... the 2 circular disc's in my post were found on another forum, I like the guys idea, it makes sense.

Here's the link .... https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3281147

River-S .... Plexiglass or Lexan would be another good option, strong & light weight.

Tks

I have done something similar a 9 disk with float foam as well on the shaft.



May your tip-up spool while your flag raises with hopes of landing the big one.

If you don't use the drill chuck to hold the adapter, you can not drop it down the hole. Chucks are put on with a 1/2 inch fine thread. Ebay sells adapters that thread on to the drill in place of the chuck. This also saves your drill chuck from getting all rusty in the winter. I would also replace the wing nut that secures the auger to the adapter with a SHCS and loctite it in place, and secure it with a wrap or 2 of electrical tape. Then your auger will not fall off. You just need to be careful if your auger is so large that the entire thing can go down the hole.
