Hey all: I am located in Owatonna and I am looking for someone to sharpen my auger blades and do some general maintenance on it. I have had my Jiffy for eight years and it has worked great. I am afraid, if I do the work myself, I will just screw it up. Thanks! Jim

Al's Shop in Janesville does small engine work, but I don't know about blade sharpening. What does it need? There isn't much maintenance to them if they are running good.

I dropped mine off at Reel Fishing and Tackle, they have a guy that works on them, he fixed my recoil, then he took the time to make sure it ran ok and readjusted the idle for me, had no idea It needed that, but know it runs better than ever and starts even easier, I dont know about the blade sharpening, most people just buy replacements.

You can buy blades that have been resharpend but I have not had any luck with them. It is really a drag when you get to the lake and the blades do not work.

With the price of gas these days it is probably best to buy new rather than waste a trip to the lake and a trip back into town.

Some of the older Jiffys had non-removable blades if I am not mistaken, so you can't buy new blades.

I have one of the non-replaceable blade jiffys and been just touching it up by hand for years. Those have soft steel but seem to cut fine & sharpening them isn't a percision grinding process like a hand auger.

Also, you can pick up a whole new 10" auger bottom(with blade) for under $100, if yours runs and you don't want to put out the money for a new one.

Be careful with business names that are non-sponsor businesses on a post like this. I'd rather see non-sponsor business names exchanged via e-mail or telephone. Thank you.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
