Awesome video, my question is why is the basket not wire dimensional with the gauge size for little necks  .  Be easier sorting in cold weather

State regs requires the ribs on the rakes to be 15/16" or smaller.......DMF wants you to gauge your stuff by hand........

Ribb Rakes are by far one of the best rakes around, along with Sand eel rakes and other shell fish products . Maggie is a long time family friend and is a person that ensues assuring that any thing you purchases from her and daughter  is of the best quality . If you need a rake for what ever reason new or repaired they do the best to make sure you are a happy camper when you leave the shop. They also do special jobs when it come to types of handles . wood or aluminum and the lengths as well. They also will modify your basket from the start and make it wider or longer  then normal . She made a special sand eel rake once that was so wide I had to cut some of the bar off in order to lift it out of the water when loaded with sand eels . Good People to the fishing community

Steve as you know Ron took his own life back in another time and perhaps what happened with you is unfortunate , that I can agree with.  I am on the other hand speaking of his wife and daughter that had to take on the business to survive , which they were able to do, surely he did not copy all of the other rakes they now make for the clamming folks . It may be time for a little forgiveness, His wife and daughter should not be accountable for what Ron Did to you so many years ago .  Peace and Prayers

Ron gave me a nice deal on that custom rec rake he made for me. However I've had the rake retoothed a couple times since, and they're not bashful about price. In my memory serves me, it was $10 a tooth.

The last time I spoke with Maggy about the ice picks she uses they were made in Germany , where she also purchased them . The ice picks from Germany were better made then the local ones. or so i was told .

I'm not talking about ice pick teeth for sand eel rakes. I'm talking about retoothing a quahog rake.

Nice to see some clarity to your post . Steve assumed you were speaking about a sand eel rake as that is where the conversation between Steve and i was at before you posted yours . :howdy: Peace and Prayers

When Rob started this thread, the video succinctly showed the Ribb Co manufacturing quahogging rakes. I was contributing to the topic of building and retoothing said rakes, and not sandeel rakes.
