Sausage Stuffer

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I am in the market for a sausage stuffer. I have done some on line research and I am leaning toward the Weston 5lb manual vertical stuffer.  Does anybody have this unit or have any recomendations? 

 

Thanks,

Dont be afraid of the stuffers with plastic gears..

 

Several of us have made lots of sausage with our Northern stuffers with no problems..

I also have an LEM but do agree with Craig. Even if you did break a plastic gear you can order a replacement gear from LEM that fits the Northern Stuffer

Northern Tool has great stuffers and I believe if the nylon gears do break usually from overtravel by the operator, metal replacement gears are available.

If ya stop when it hits bottom it wont break...simple..

 I was worried about the nylon gears as well but everyone on here put that worry to rest. I can't wait to buy mine. Order it up from Northern Tool before the sale runs out.

Get some food grade slicone spray. I got the LEM and have been known to use canola cooking spray.

 

I lube the gears and threaded parts before and during stuffing (each refill).

 

And after cleaning.
