18v Dewalt Auger (Cranker talked about it) ?

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info on an 18v drill getting converted into an auger? The Cranker talked about a guy using one.

Do you need a special gear box or is it just an adapter?

Thanks

My dad was telling me about this a couple of years ago when he saw someone "drilling" holes with an 18V drill on the Mississippi backwaters. He asked the guy about it and I guess what he used was a hole saw bit that fit inside of his Lazer hand auger( not sure of the size...9/16, 11/16 ???). The hole saw has an oval opening on the side of it and he lined that up with the hole in the auger where the bolt would go through to attach the handle. Next he drilled through the hole saw with a bit that would make a hole the same size as the one on the auger, which would allow the bolt to pass all the way through. Then all he did was attach the drill as you would with any other bit and voila-a lightweight,electric, rechargable ice auger!!

They work very well. I have one. Bought it off ebay last year. Can't remember the name but basically its an adaptor that fits in your drill and then onto a hand auger. The one I have will only cut a six inch hole. I can get about 8 holes off one battery. I heard the company that makes them did upgrade now so you can use a 8" auger. I'll try to find the name for you.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
