Do any of you know of anyone in the Port Huron area that sharpens auger blades?
I have called Anderson's & Anglers & they don't.
Thanks in advance.

I am sure if you call Jerry at Anglers pointe and ask when a good time to stop by would be he would sharpen them while you wait. He has done it for me and a friend while we waited, and have seen him bring them out to someone waiting after he sharpened them. You just need to stop in when they aren't slammed. I really didn't wanna post that cause then people will just expect him to sharpen them while they wait.

Thanks Norm...Jerry & Sheri run a great store & really know how to take care of their customers.

Looks like I will drive down to see them & get my blades done.

I sent blades to Anglers Point a few years back. I could not believe how fast the turn around was. Great place to deal with to get blades sharpened.

The blades had been abused by cutting the sand filled ice on Silver Lake (Sand Dunes). They cut just like the did when they were new.

Buy a 1.5 inch belt sander from Harbor Freight, a matching leather belt on Amazon and some green rouge. Watch a couple of ytube vids, and touch up the edges. Google how to shim the blades with some tin from a pop can.

If you have good steel from years ago, that's all you'll need. If you have cheaper/softer steel, it will still be better than paying to have it sharpened only to get dull again.

Shimming is typically a better fix than sharpening. Too many times, the auger is banged on the ice, in the tub, etc., and the blade angle gets off. Shimming corrects the lack of bite problem.
