      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Jiffy blade shimming--need help!

Recommended Posts

BradB

Hi,

I have a 2 HP Jiffy Legend Lightning that is on its 3rd season. I have changed blades 3 or 4 times since I bought it.

This weekend I had trouble getting the blade to catch the ice, so I changed it to a new sharp one. The problem persisted. It will cut, but I have to push down hard.

I've heard that you may need to shim the blade somewhat to get the angle correct. I don't know how to do this, or what angle to shim it at.

Is there anyone out there who has had this problem and might not mind giving me a tip or two? Thanks!

Brad

Brad, I've got a mod.30 and what ive done is to take a piece of tin the length of the part of the blade that bolts on the auger aprox 2.5"x 1/4", then loosen the 2 bolts and slide the shim in on the cutting side of the blade,to the bolts, re tighten, you shouldnt need more than 1 thickness, another thing is make sure the centering point is sharp, thats probly what yer prob was?!

Right on, Minneman! That's exactly what I was looking for.

And you're right, the centering point is not sharp. Do you just take a file to it?

I just brought it back from LOTW and thawed it in the bathtub. It was caked with ice and I couldn't see that that centering point wasn't sharp.

One more thing. Upon further review I found that one of the welds holding the centering point was broken. It wasn't obvious, but with a bit of wiggling you can detect it. That might have been a big part of my problem.

I took it to a tool shop that we do work with, here at work. They're going to fix the weld and sharpen the point. That ought to get me going.
