So waiting on parts to get here for my smoker mod and seen the other day someone posted on converting a hand crank meat grinder into electric. So I decided to share my version on this mod. I built this about two years ago and unfortunately didnt take any build pics. So I decided to somewhat tear it down for a few pics to show how I built it. Shaft rpm is 155 rpm due to pulley ratio. This is a vintage gear reducted drill motor. It's 3/4 hp and output at the shaft is 275 rpm. This is normally how I end up cleaning it, at first I was pulling the 4 bolts that hold the grinder to the base but anymore I just pull the auger out and wipe down while still attached.
