Ice Hack #1:

When storing your auger for the off season, be sure to apply crease to the blades. It’s a good idea to remove the blades and place them into a small plastic container. They are normally sold with a hex wrench, which should be kept with the blades and screws. Keep in mind that your blades should be absurdly sharp, so safety is a big concern. My favorite application for lip balm is to use the applicator as a means of keeping my hands away from the business end of my ice auger.
