Jennifer is a vet at the Ely clinic. She is an awesome vet (as are the other two vets at the clinic).

And a much classier individual because of it.

Never met Blake but have met Jennifer. She's a class act that knows how to raise, train and get the most out of her dogs. I hope they finish with happy, healthy teams.

Finns,

It would appear to me that you are a social climbing Finlander wannabee. \:D

Using the nickname Finns to insinuate this, indeed!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

She is the vet for my Dog. And she does a great job with the animals. Good Luck to them.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
