Blades the same?

Question

Dave S

I had a Strikemaster Laser 8" hand auger and put the adapter on it to use a drill. Well, as luck would have it, the adapter twisted off and now Lake Koronis acquired my auger. I just bought new blades which I haven't put on luckily.

 

Does the Laser hand auger use the same blades as the new Lite Flite auger? Figured if I have to replace the auger, I'd go with the new bit.

To answer your question, unfortunately  no. The lazer hand auger blades are just a plain straight edge lazer style blade where the power auger bits/ lite flites are a serrated ( groves in blades on edges). Two totally different blades.

Wow, that stinks.  😟

Please mark the hole with your cell GPS.  When I go there some day to try out the lake I'll fish it out with the big magnet I have and what ever fish I can pull out too!  😉

Just east of Bug-Bee Hive Resort. About 27 FOW. Either you or someone else will get a new bit. 🤣

If that's the case, I'll either need to decide to get a new hand auger or I buy the new Lite Flite. If I choose the latter, I have a set of new blades for an 8" with no use. If I opt for the new hand auger, I'll make a new adapter myself with a larger hex than the 3/8" and stronger steel. Probably stainless. Can't believe the darn thing twisted right off without breaking an arm first.

All that said, cutting edge is one thing. There is a curvature to the blades and a specific angle for cutting properly. That was the main point of my question. Not too concerned either way at this point I guess.

      One thing that's interesting being at a Seasonal resort all summer is watching how so many folks clean and fillet their fish in the cleaning shack.  And all the different fillet knives folks have. You can really pick-up some good hints.  I'm probably more like Wanderer in that I just spent hours in a boat catching these fish. I take my time to do the best job I can at filleting them out.  I do marvel at one of my buddies pan fish filleting.  Freaky-fast and clean!  😁

      How many holes today?  By the looks of the size, may be you should have stayed home? 🤭

      Future monster if the catfish don’t eat it. Lol

      I use them to bone out and trim venny also.  Perfect knife for it. The electric I have found works nice on ribs. I think the cutco is probably about 35 years old also. Not 30. Had it sharpened a few years back by the rep here. Cool knife she said. 😁

      Second, but would be willing to change if I owed a skins zit. Most of my fish are cleaned with a 6" rubber handled rap. Use a 4" for walleye cheeks, and also have a larger one for big northerns.    Mmmm, those gills were good tonight. I did get a Cutco, for a gift a while back, decent knife. Just comfortable with the newer Raps, prefer rubber over the wood for handles.  I know I must have quite a few fillet knives, but none as old as that cutco eyeguy has.... That adjustment comes in handy for large gators on the Cutco.

      I fillet around the rib bones right away. And I have my own unique way of doing pike. Don't ask.😊

      I have a Cutco and a Rapala electric that I use 99% of the time.   If I use the electric, I do it the first way, but I leave it attached to the tail to take off the fillet.   When I use the Cutco I usually do it the second way.  I also have 2 regular rapalas.  One old wood handled 5” and a rubber handled 7” that I got my son to learn to fillet with.  The 5” gets used a ton in the house for all kinds of things. Used it last weekend to slice a veni roast up for making jerky.  It’s a sweet little rig that can get in all the tight spots.

      Bottom one is 35 years old. Cutco I got about 30 years ago. Still a great knife. Can’t throw the old ones away lol
