I've been looking for a while too. I'm down to either the LEM, or the one from Walton's Inc
This one also has metal gears and good reviews. Anyone have one? Comments?
Well, I have the Lem 5# stuffer and it is big enough for what I normally do. If I was doing it again I'd be sorely tempted with this one for $120 less than a comparable Lem. I agonize over things like this for weeks until I pull the trigger. It looks a lot like the 10# Lem and I do like Waltons. Their casings are excellent and at a great price compared to other sites. I guess it depends on your wallet at this point and perhaps how long you intend to keep this until you upgrade to a larger stuffer. I thought my propane smoker would be my last after the ECB...LOL...now, I've got a Smokin It #3 and a pellet pusher, the others long gone. I'm a 'buy once, cry once' type and have always felt there's a reason one is cheaper than the other. Which is why I could never understand why some would go with the cheapest bid on a project and then bitch about the outcome. Good luck with the decision but let us know IF you get the Waltons one how it performs after a few runs......Willie
