    Anyone do 17-19mm snack sticks on a motorized stuffer? I recently ordered a Lem 20lb motorized stuffer and when I got it I found out that the smallest stuffing tube that it came with requires you to manually feed 17-19mm casings on by hand. On my previous stuffer I had a tube that allowed the...
