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.
yeah they do way a ton, they are built like a locomotive.but for now I can still lift it myself,

Nice 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, 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.
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!

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
