Actually there was a total of 4 1/2 people working. (the hound counts as the half) Since I was doing the picture taking, and was the only one drinking there was only 3 actually working. The little 5 lb stuffer isn't too bad. Espically considering that a 15 lb stuffer costs lots more. Snack Sticks ain't too bad to stuff, but stuffing 33 mm casing is another matter. our constantly fillin the stuffer. Time is money and since I got more time than money guess I'll use the 5 lb Grizzly. There really a great deal as they are the cheapest on the market. Also the nylon gears hold up great, I only changed then out to see if the L.E.M. gears were compatable.
