I need some suggestions on a hog ring pliers that actually works. I have been having problems with the rings crimping down tight enough. I searched the forums and got a little info but I'm curious what others are using and what works.
This is the one I use:
I use the smaller rings that LEM said are good for Summer Sausage but I still am not satisfied. When I crimp down the ends of the ring meet so I can't tighten it any more. Inevitably, the ring is then too loose.
I know this sounds like a minute problem but believe me it is really frustrating!! I do a lot of sausage and I like to pack the casings really tight. Give me a professional crimp or give me death!! :-p
