    Well i wanted to get the new Cabelas stuffer/motor combo, My wife said yeah go ahead. After weighing the pros/cons and me not doing as much since moving i said SELF

    Why dont you just make both your water stuffers electric valve operated?  Yeah

    So i venture out and get things together.

    The valve is new 120v for a washing machine. What i will do is cap off one and use it for a spare if one side goes out. (cant beat it for $14) And the rest of the parts. I will get this going tomorrow.

    Just what you need. Another water stuffer. [​IMG] Was there something wrong with your other one. Or am I reading that wrong and you are adding this to  your existing stuffer?

    Nothing wrong with em, just going to fit em up and use my grinder pedal with the valves so i dont have to fool with the ball valves anymore.

    I subscribed to this thread

    Not gonna miss any info!!!

    A "Momentary On" Foot Switch can be found at Harbor Freight for $13.99

    Here's a link: http://www.harborfreight.com/momentary-power-foot-switch-96619.html

    I use it on my grinder, and my stuffer motor from Cabelas came with one too.

    What you gonna use for the outside cylinder?

    How about the seal or O-Ring?

    Plunger?

    How you gonna reverse it?

    I'm very interested in this one!!!!

    C'mon Rick "Wake Up" and get started!!!!

    Thanks for the link to the HF one Todd. I have it bookmarked.

    I believe Rick is just going to adapt his two existing stuffers to use the footpedal.
     
  9. You are right Joel. That is what he told me. He knows some electronic genius that's helping him with it.

    When you get this lined out and running like you want, what's the chance of getting a parts list? I'm interested in doing this myself.

    Rick,

    I'm really interested in making one too

    Some of the parts can be found at the hardware store, but where do we get the piston and seals

    What's the cost estimate to build one(or 2)?

    THX!
