This post will be short and incomplete ,I am out of pocket often but it is intended to help new be's who are first starting to process meat ie grinding it up and equipment that is available .I am out of country alot so internet is not good ,I will try and answer ? when i can . This post is about the way I have set up 2 grinders that work really well with a #32 grinder purchased off the internet . I will do my best to update this post as the build is going on ,to help folks know the options they have if they have any basic mechanic and or carpenter skills .
In my opinion buying a self contained unit from a big box store is not an option , I process a lot of deer and pork and just have not seen and or trust the self contained units unless they are old ones ,
alright here are the pixs , hope it helps someone setting up a grinder with a separate electric drive , the key is the pillow blocks and pulley set up that give the torque that makes it all work , these are not bad grinders if you clean them , oil them , and let them work at the pace theycan handle
