It looks great, we would love to see it in action!

 

Would you go over to the roll call section & introduce yourself, so we can all give you a SMF welcome. Thanks!

Wow, that is quite a nice bit of engineering!  Building one myself in the next week or two.  No more hand stuffing after last weekend's 16 lb. adventure!  Our 2 grinders didn't work for stink when it came to stuffing!!!!  102.gif

Nice job! I still haven't ordered the parts for mine yet. What size PVC did you use? 6"? From the photos, it looks like the plunger is 2 pieces of HDPE or is that another groove for an O ring? How much capacity do you have with it?

 

I am limiting myself to 3 questions for now. biggrin.gif

Its made out of 8" pvc and is 3' 4" in length. The piston was machined out of a solid piece of 8" UHMW polyethylene. It holds roughly 60 pounds of meat. I will try and get video next time i do some grinding. It still needs quite a few small modifications but i stuffed 55lbs of sausage and 40lbs of deer bacon burger
for the first time last weekend and it worked great. I will head over to the roll call section shortly. Im new to this so bare with me guys. Feel free to ask questions about the stuffed!

That's pretty slick, I'm assuming you run it upright like pictured and the height was figured to match with your table top? I like it. Any idea what you have invested in it? Where did you get materials?

I should be doing some grinding in the next week or to so ill try to figure out how to set up a link for video. I've got about 500 bucks into it. I bought the piston stock from interstate plastics online and the flanges from pvcfittings.com . I had to find a plumbing supply company locally to buy the 8" pic from and they only sell it in 20' sticks. The guy that did the machining on the piston got the o-rings. I think they are 1/8" but we Polly should have used 1/4". It took several tries to get the piston to seal but not jam in the pipe. Thanks for all the replies!

I do run it vertical like shown and i designed the height of it to work with the table i use for processing.
