[quote="Kfedka"]Yes, I'm getting a new one. Any tips on how to sharpen them, I seen these sharpeners on ebay and other stores are they any good]
I wouldn't waste my money or time on trying to sharpen the blades. I have a friend that fought with his auger every time we went out last year and the auger always won. He used a stone and tried to sharpen (Clean Up) his auger blades and could never get the auger to cut right again. I felt sorry for him and purchased new blades for him just prior to our last time hitting the ice last year and he thanks me every time we talk. I think I paid eight or ten dollars for the new blades. I've been using the same blades that came with my auger three years ago without ever trying to sharpen them and they still cut like new. Just make sure that you always cover the blades with the protective cover that comes with the auger after each use and I'm sure you'll get at least a few good years out of the blades. I do have an extra set of blades just in case. Nothing ruins a trip out on the ice quicker than having a non-functioning auger.
