The economy is reeking havoc on everyone. Something like this sounds like youngsters. Just don't leave anything to chance be it in your vehicle or your icehouse. I would not even lock the door to your house.

i would imagine it will only get worse as there will probably be less police with the bad economy and more and more thieves. plus people that want to catch numbers of fish will try to get away from the crowds and make themselves a bigger theft target.

It sucks, sorry to hear you lost anything. Some are real idiots and have no respect for others.

If i ever catch anyone breaking into a shack or stealing someones stuff, it'd be real hard not to come up behind them and knock them out cold and bury them in the snow. that stuff [PoorWordUsage] me off.

Incidents like this, and predictions of more, should make us all think a bit more about community security. In my mind, that means watching out for your neighbor and even the stranger's truck. More than once when I've pulled up to a boat landing and found someone sketchy hanging around, I've sat there looking at them. They leave pretty quick.

Look out for one another, even if you don't know anyone.

This is a good idea seems like when you look a thief in the eye they get scared and run away.

Another thing you can do if you see someone looking suspect is pull out your phone and look at em and act like your making a call. I've done it before and it has worked. Its sad that people steal things.

I'm sorry that you were a victim. Like the others have said watch out for others peoples stuff just like you hope others watch out for yours.

Best way I've found to keep my ramps safe is to drive onto them with my truck so they're under my front or back wheels, I don't leave any opportunities...

but i dont think the grouping "kids" is always fair...im what you would consider a "kid" (im 17) and i would never dream of doing that stuff. i have values that i live up to. there always has to be some bad apples spoiling it for everyone else though, and it probably is a group of teenagers with nothing better to do than steal stuff and pawn it off.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.
    • papadarv
      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you  
    • leech~~
      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
