I was given a Jiffy model 30 a few days ago. She starts on the first pull.

The issue, the auger bit has the permanent blade on it and I cannot replace it. The blade is duller then heck, is there a way to sharpen them?

If I cannot sharpen them, Can I take a grinder and cut the blade off, drill 2 holes and then put a replacement blade on it?

Thanks for the help.

Rapids Rental in WI Rapids sharpens auger blades attached to the drill. They do a great job. If you are not from the area you could ship it to themusing Spee Dee .http://www.rrscoinc.com/

I had an old Model 30 at one time w/ the permanent blade.The blade can be sharpened - whetstone or similar. Be careful about the sharpener linked below - it's designed for Lazer brand shaving blades - different from the Jiffy's chipper - and may be an entirely different sharpening angle altogether.

However, it it were me, I'd get a whole new auger bit for it. I ended up getting a new bit for it also - got to choose what size I wanted and allows for piece of mind if you'd like to carry extra blades or need to swap them out on the ice.

Could try looking for a replacement auger or I purchased a blade sharpener and they work pretty well.

Not sure if you'll want to want to take your blades off because I would think that the angle placement of the blades is just as important as how sharp the blades are.

Do you have a pic of the auger and blades?
