yeah they do way a ton, they are built like a locomotive.but for now I can still lift it myself,Have an old one myself. Though don't use any more. So dam heavy to move. They did make them to last. Mine came from a meat market that was closing. They had used it for 15 plus years.
Wow that is awesome. I still remember seeing those in OLD mom and pop stores when I was a kid. You should go online and try to find the date of manufacture. A true classic!thanks, yeah it's an old Hobart, not sure how old it is but I bought it off a older friend of mine a couple years back and to quote him he told me he bought it from an old store 30 years ago for 60 bucks and that this grinder doesn't owe him nothing and to just give him back his 60 bucks. I couldn't believe he gave it to me for that.
thank you sir, neat you still have your grandma's and mom's grinders. them older ones were built to last no matter what brand! you better get it running though and keep the wife happy. thanks for the like JimNice looking on my screen.
Wife has been asking for venison sausage
Love the grinder, too.
I have my grand mother's and mother's grinders. Unfortunately, they are Armstrong models.
thanks Ray, yeah it's an old but great grinder, it grinds anything I put through it without bogging at all, I use straight fat usually 2lb fat 8lb meat and thanks for the like!Wow! While your grinder kind of steals the limelight the kielbasa and bologna look to be spot on. Do you cut your sausage with porkbutt or go with straight backfat? Like, RAY
thank you indaswamp, yeah i'm glad I tried gave the bologna a try will be doing it again, maybe trying a recipe from someone on smf, so if you know of any good ones let me know, yeah the old girl still grinds like a bear, as long as I can move it around it will have a home.Lookin good smokerjim, glad you gave the bologna a try. And I had forgotten you had that old grinder, good to see it posted again...they just don't make 'em like that any more....
