Lazer centering point on a Mora flight.
« on: Jan 13, 2021, 01:37 PM »
Anyone ever tried it?  If it's as simple as tapping the hole that's already there I think it would be worth it when running on a drill.

Pretty sure it's a matter of clearance between the point and the inside corners of the blades.  Probably gonna have to do some grinding and that isn't going to happen until the temps are a little better for hanging out in the garage.  I didn't notice at first but I didn't get the same points that Lefty got and that they show in their advertising.  These have a flange on them so they can't be screwed in as far.

On the plus side the tapping operation went fine.  The hole that was there was the right size, just cleaned out the powder coat a bit and cranked in the tap.

Can you snap a pic of your bit and how it didnt fit? I noticed on the other thread, most people had to add washers to get the point higher. Also what size mora do you have? I was planning on doing an old 8" mora and mine doesnt have a hole, noticed the blades are pretty close together too so that has me a little concerned. I have a couple other old augers to try if this one doesnt work

It's an 8" but it's newer which is why it has a hole and yours doesn't I suppose.  I think the reason for that washer was because without the flange the point can screw in too far.  The flange keeps it from going in far enough.

Can you also post a couple pics of the outer ends of the blades, and how they mount to the frame?  I’m trying to see if the newest 8” Moras are still putting a set of 8” blades on the 7” model’s auger bit to achieve the 8” model.

I misread your question.  We covered that in another thread with word direct from Strikemaster.  They each have their own flights now.  You can put 8" blades on a 7" but not the other way around, at least not without grinding down some of the carriage for clearance.

I cant really see what the flange is, is it a teflon type washer molded onto it? Looks white in your picture

No, it's all one piece of metal.
