Ice chisel Sharpening question

3 posts in this topic

I have ice fever . . . .Does anyone know of a local business that sharpends ice chisels? I have the Mille Lacs model, which has the layered "teeth", rather than a straight edge. I'm assuming it will be tougher to ind someone who an sharpen this?

Any advice? Thanks!

It's easy enough to do yourself-just use a flat file and work into the edge (from the bottom up). Just work with the angle and leave just a hint of a flat edge (1/32 to 1/16th of an inch), as a razor edge will "fold over" and dull quite quickly. Hope this helps-otherwise I would think your local hardware store would appreciate your business for a small fee wink.gif

Hmmmm... I just looked up the model and I see it has hardened steel. It might be tough to sharpen with a flat file, but you could still give it a whirl. Also, with the hardened steel, you could go razor thin as the edge won' curl over easily. Your local hardware store should still be a good option.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
