A Meat Grinder Followed me home-

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by loosemeat, Sep 6, 2010.

  1. Yes, a meat grinder followed me home.  Been looking and can't find anything about the universal #73.  How do you clean and maintain this beast?  (aside from opening it...) What lubricants are safe and helpful in the long run?  Which blade chops what? I have looked up the instruction manual, and found nothing yet. Point me in the right direction.  At work I like motors and am very grateful for electricity, but in the kitchen, I like a good work out- am sure the other mechanical grinders are awesome, but am interested (at least for now) in some of the non-electric appliances.[​IMG]
  2. Here she is all cleaned up. Any ideas on what to try as a first project?[​IMG]

    I hate when stuff like that follows me home = )
  5. So Far I made bread crumbs for a casserole- It ruled.  Plus it's fun to set it up on the porch bannister to do the deed.  Today- it gets to grind meat.

    Here's a site I found about cleaning; http://www.ehow.com/how_4487645_clean-store-meat-grinder.html

    As for lubrication, I don't think any is necessary. Meat fats should, I would think, provide any lubrication needed.

    I agree with AK1,

    Especially with that type of grinder, and that's a good "ehow" on it.

    Also, be careful what else follows you home,[​IMG]
