A face lift for the ole Cabela's grinder

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My Cabelas 1 hp grinder has been a little sluggish lately. She's gone through a lot of meat since I picked her up about 6 years ago..... Time to freshen her up

 

Look what I have at the back of the shop at work..............:biggrin:

 

 

4.5mm plate looks a little worn

 

 

 

All cleaned up 

 

 

7mm looking bad too

 

 

 

 

 

All cleaned up

 

 

 

 

Made a jig to hold the knife.... The blade didn't look like it needed to be sharpened until I sharpened it... What a big difference. .....After all the surface grinding i realized that precision is not a part of a grinder. Everything was off up to 0.020 but now its all straight and true....

 

 

Now that's a sharp blade

 

 

 

Now I'm ready for sausage season... Time to get busy with the stock pile of meat Ive been saving

 

 

Thanks for looking

 

Joe

right on,, it does make a difference to have the blade sharp., I need to get mine in shape now that the "season" is upon us again.

I SO ENVY your surface grinder!  Those are handy for a LOT of things.

 

Makes my granite and paper look primitive!

 

Great work sir, I may have to call in a favor from a friend that has one here local.
