yes and no. it does take a little bit of wear off the drill. the bearing on the plate takes up some of the wear. as for hooking a k drill to a Clam plate you will need the adapter that either Clam sells or the one vexilar sells. the adapter from clam will only work with the gen 4 plates (ones that you do not take the chuck off the drill). if you have a gen 1 to 3 plate(one you take the chuck off the drill) then you need the adapter that vexilar sells. hope this answers your question.

Marmooska if you are interested I would cut you a good deal on my Gen 1 clam plate with a Dewalt 995 on it along with a extension already. all you would need to buy is a Dewalt battery and charger for the drill (like $150 for one battery and the charger together give or take a little) $100 for the drill, plate, & extension. I am in Monticello and if you wanted too you can try it out before you buy it. we could run to the lake up the road from my house if you wanted to try it first.

marmooska,

Just so you are aware of it with the Clam Plates there is no longer a need to take the chuck off the drill. the drill hooks on to the spindle that runs through the bearing and then to your auger. the auger can either be bolted on with a allen head bolt (just like on a gas auger but a smaller diameter) or by using the wing bolt that holds the hand auger to the handle. also by not having to take the chuck off you have the ability to use the drill around the house for any other projects that might come up in the off season. one other thing to take into consideration to is that you will want to get the extension for the auger right away or you will be bending ove to drill your holes. other then that the plate set up is a very good thing to have. I have had one since they came out and no longer run gas augers unless we would get 3 plus foot thick ice. the recommended drills for the plate are either the Dewalt 996 or the Milwaukee M18 Fuel. 750 inch pounds is the recommended minimum torque for the drill so shop around for one that is 750 or more. either of these drills can be found for around $275.00 to $300.00 that will include the drill, 1 or 2 batteries and the charger.

The Vexilar FLX 12 & FLX 20 are the only new models this year. the original FL 12 & FL 20 are now discontinued but Vexilar does still have a few reconditioned units for sale for those that like the original FL series.

One of these might work for you if the one from Berkley doesn't work out. the first one is out of stock right now but should be back in stock hopefully by the end of this week.

My hope would be that I will be on the ice by the first week of December. earliest I have been on ice was November 28th one year and last year my first time out was on December 12th. so if all works out and the wind dies down I would hope to find a fishable lake sometime in this time frame. time will tell.

Actually it is not a Clam Product. it is from Todays Tackle and they put the Clam name on it. they still offer it under their name too. I had a couple of the todays tackle ones and didn't care for them. cool concept but the gills and crappies would always get their fins caught it in it so it acted more like a net then a live well.

in the long term I would say yes the gas augers will die out with time as cost of the electrics will eventually go down. it is like anything technology is always changing and evolving. I just sold my gas auger and have to say for as low as I was asking for it, it took a fair amount of time to sell. I have now made the switch to electric by going to the Clam drill plate setup. this will be the third season on my first one that is setup with a six inch auger and for this year I got a second one and added the new gear box to it so I can run a eight inch auger on it. the nice thing is the new 8 inch setup is 8 pounds lighter then gas auger(19 LBS vs 27 LBS). the weight savings was a big factor in my decision to make the switch over the up front cost.
