hand crank auger adapter

Recommended Posts

Pyrex

My brother in law is looking at an adapter that mounts on a hand crank ice auger and you use a 18 volt cordless drill to turn it. it looks like it would work, but i'm not sure about the power of it, has anyone seen these? Like I said, the brother in law is gonna buy it so I'm not out anything (ha,ha)just wondering if anyone has any info on these.

I have seen them in use. The ones that I have seen used were used for reopening holes which is very hard on the blades but I guess its easier than using it to drill through 20" of solid ice. I have seen them in a few bait shops although I cant remember where. I am pretty sure you can find one on that big auction site if it would come down to that.

They are called a Nimrod. Just got one for Christmas. $21 at Runnings. Was pretty skeptical, I put it on an 18V makita with 3 amp hr batteries. Can drill 8-10 holes with a foot of ice. Actually, it's pretty slick. Does not work well on high speed setting, drill needs to be set on slowest setting and put minimal down pressure on it once it starts to bite.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
