Default 8 inch Eskimo Hand Auger

http://denver.craigslist.org/spo/4259787035.html


Drilled one hole with it and waited for the gas auger to show up. Hand drilling is just not for me.

Nothing wrong with a man admitting his limitations, I won't even call ya a sissy.

It isn't that bad unless you are chasing perch, 10 holes or so is my daily limit with the 10"

We drilled 9 holes today in 11-12" of ice with my Mora.

Each hole took about 20 seconds, didn't break a sweat. I'm certainly no badass, but a 6" StrikeMaster with sharp blades may as well be powered... "Like buttah!!!"

Sold to a guy on his way to 11 mile!

I had it along for some good trips I'm sure, even if it wasn't used, so hopefully it brings some luck with it (if he needs it even haha).

Over a foot of ice at 11. I was there a week ago with a hand auger, it was brutal.

Poor bastage! I don't mind using a good hand auger but those Eskimos ain't worth shit.
