Water stuffer went pretty good. Only leaks i had were from my own doing by not having the connections on the back tight.

Am I seeing correctly that you hook a garden hose up to the back of that thing?  I don't see any controls of any sort, how do you stop/start/adjust for speed?  Inquiring minds want to know???  Oh by the way, nice looking sticks.

Me too. Now your snack sticks look good and all but a water stuffer. I would also like to see more on that thing. Not to take away from your snack sticks but that thing is way cool.

Yes great looking sticks!! but you have to tell us about your stuffer.there must be some type of regulator ,flow control something.

Just learning this stuff and maybe need to read some more.. but why cut off the ends? To make them uniform in appearance?

When i just hang them on the rods you get a bend at the top. Cutting the bends and ends off make the placement in the vac bags easier. When i tie into uniform lengths i dont cut the ends.
