New Sausage Stuffer w/ QView

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I found my new (to me) sausage stuffer on Craigslist for a mere $60.00. It's a Chop-Rite (formerly Enterprise) #35 8 qt. stuffer, in very good condition. No cracks or repairs needed, just a good refurb and seasoning.

I'll give it a cast iron electrolysis clean up, repaint the non-food surfaces (excluding gears, threads, etc) with high temp paint, and then oil it up and give it a good oven seasoning and it'll be ready to go.

A new 3/8" tapered, 7/16" straight, 1/2" tapered, and 3/4" tapered stuffing tubes are on the way, along with a new press gasket from eBay.

I should be able to fill it with about 15 lbs at a time, I think. On to the pictures!

Nice, what's the first type of sausage you are going to run through there?

Probably about 50 lbs of Vension snack sticks in 19mm collagen casings. I need to get my smoker built first, though. I should be picking up a stainless commercial refrigerator later this week or early next week. It'll take me a couple of weeks to get that ready to go, I think.

I think so. Based on condition and the cleanup I mentioned, I would guess it's worth around $250-$300 on eBay. I see the new ones are in the $500 range. I happened to see the ad on CL about 15 minutes after he posted it and went and picked it up immediately. I'm pretty sure if I had even hesitated an hour or saw it later, I wouldn't have a new toy icon_smile.gif.

That's the stuffer I got last year....great will be better for ya if you can figure out a way to attach it to a table when in use. Also electrolysis will turn it silver...I am planning on getting a gear attachment for mine which makes it a lot easier to crank the handle around....good luck and post pics when your done with it

I have to find something to do until I can work on my smoker. I won't pickup the commercial stainless refrigerator I'm gutting until this weekend, and won't have the money and parts for a few weeks.
