I picked up a 5lb LEM vertical stuffer with metal gears and sausage kits for $149 at a store called Fleet Farm in Minneapolis, but it wasn't on sale. I do recommend the kit though. It is a good solid stuffer. It was around the same price as the stuffer Gander Mountain sells but Gander Mountain doesn't have metal gears and didn't come with sausage kits. I recommend looking for a the LEM unit online if you are looking for a sale.
Here is a spot online that has it on sale, but for the same price. http://www.meatprocessingproducts.com/lem838.html They also have the stuffer without the kit for about $20 less.
I did just find out that this doesn't come with a tube small enough to do sheep casings for breakfast sausage. That is $13 more from the LEM site. (I hadn't tried the small sausages yet.) the small tube is metal. It is still a fantastic stuffer.
