Gander Mountain has their 5 pound stainless steel stuffer on a pre-black friday special for $59.99 through November 14th. I've seen this stuffer in my local store and it is identical to the Northern Tool model that I have. Yes it does have the white nylon gears, but as long as you pay attention and don't crank hard when the plunger bottoms out, it is not an issue. Another tip is mark your screw with a black marker so you know when you are close to bottoming out the plunger.
For anyone who has been on the fence about a stuffer, this is a great price for the occasional sausage maker who cannot justify the cost of the bigger more expensive models. And if you are still using the grinder to stuff, please get one of these. The difference between a stuffer and using the grinder is night and day.
Use coupon code GMT5 for an extra $5 off plus free shipping! That code is good for $5 off of $50 and a final price of $54.99, use code OFFERS10 for $10 off $100. Great buy for sure!!
