might go with two outside rows of double screws per knob. I have seen them made both ways.

Report from the DNR

People preparing for the opening of the 2013 sturgeon spearing season on the Lake Winnebago system are being cautioned that ice conditions are highly variable, ranging from more than a foot of ice down to open water still remaining in some areas.

The east side of Lake Winnebago has greater ice thickness than the west side after heavy winds a few weeks ago shoved the ice up onto the east shore, leaving open water behind on the west side.

Since then, big swings in wind and temperatures have continued to keep ice conditions widely varied. There are cracks in the ice on Lake Winnebago and spearers are reminded that no ice is safe. The Department of Natural Resources does not monitor the thickness or condition of ice. Should anyone choose to venture out on it, we highly suggest contacting one of the local fishing clubs for the latest on ice conditions.

• Ice should be at least 4 inches thick before walking out onto it, 5 inches if taking a snowmobile, ATV or motorcycle.

The 2013 sturgeon spearing season opens Saturday, Feb. 9 at 6:30 a.m. and runs for 16 days, or until harvest caps are reached.

Or in other words: No ice is water.

This past weekend on the East side:

Brothertown had trees blocking the landing allowing no vehicles out.
Quinney had a large CAUTION sign warning people of thin ice if you travel out more than 1.9 miles or south.
Neither had roads plowed or marked.
Stockbridge had people traveling out over 5 miles with consistent ice of 15-17".

Along the shore which usually looks like an interstate for snowmbiles had THREE tracks running down it.

Everyone be careful out there this year!!

I just noticed that Pearls is having their ice race off Pete's on the 14th. Looks like that will be one giant poorly thought out cluster fuck.

So the difference between safety for a 200lb fella, or a 900lb atv is 1 inch of ice. Not sure I'm buying that. You go first!

I think we teach a minimum of 6" for an ATV in safety class.

But personally, I would check with the Army about it. Those engineers are clever fellows.
