    My grandpap passed this year and I got all the old butchering equipment.

    Hobart grinder



    Looking down the throat.


    1/8 inch plate?  I think it is.  Then 4 other plates.



    I cant begin to tell you how many pounds of meat I put through this when I was growing up.  It still prrrrrrrrs like a kitten.

    And this Enterprise cast iron stuffer.


    I am ready to start stuffing.

    Ok, I have a new stuffer coming.   I will use this one for back up.

    I am gonna have alot of questions so be ready all you sausage makers.

    Very nice. I bet that ole gal will pump the meat out. Made 25 pounds of breakfast sausage yesterday.
    Kids loved it. Was 60 % venison 40 % pork.

    Hey Adam great looking equipment! I will say this though the enterprise stuffers are meat to look at, but kind of a pain. I used mine 3-5 times and shelved it. If you decide to use it, be prepared to seal the plunger. To do so you need to put satan or parchment on the meat, then a towel. Otherwise you'll have pounds I meat squeezing out the top. Also in order to get all the meat out chase it with slices of bread. Otherwise you'll end up with a pound of meat in the bottom. Still cool to look at and we have ours displayed in our kitchen on top of the cabinets.

    That's sooner than me. I opted for standard shipping on the LEM so probably won't have it until the next week sometime. Then it's game on!
