The 5lb grinder that I bought came with 3 stuffing tubes th smallest of which is 1/2 inch. I wanted to make breakfast links and a 3/8 inch tube was recommended. I just got through reading where someone said that maybe the 1/2 inch tube was the smallest recommended because anything smaller would put undo pressure on the gears in the stuffer possibly causing it to fail. Is there any truth to this?
