I finally broke down and bought an inexpensive manual grinder/stuffer this weekend from Bass Pro.
It's a #10 LEM brand with hand crank that clamps to the table.
I went really inexpensive, because I wanted to make sure I would enjoy the process, and I'm sure I will, before dropping $$ on electric grinder and separate stuffer.
I do have a couple of questions though:
1. Does anybody out there have a similar grinder, and does the sausage stuffer do a decent job?
2. Inclueded with the sausage tubes was a "Star". It's 3 prongs, (kind of like a blade), about 1/8" thick or less. Has a round hole in the middle of it, so it can fit on the same shaft as the disks. The blade has a more rectangular hole and slides further down the shaft.
The star was not listed in the instructions, so I'm not sure what to do with it, any thoughts.
And yes, qview will be coming from my first grind and stuff this weekend!
