Sausage Stuffer

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by bobdog46, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. I am in the market for a sausage stuffer. I have done some on line research and I am leaning toward the Weston 5lb manual vertical stuffer.  Does anybody have this unit or have any recomendations? 

    Thanks,

    I also have an LEM but do agree with Craig. Even if you did break a plastic gear you can order a replacement gear from LEM that fits the Northern Stuffer

    Northern Tool has great stuffers and I believe if the nylon gears do break usually from overtravel by the operator, metal replacement gears are available.

     I was worried about the nylon gears as well but everyone on here put that worry to rest. I can't wait to buy mine. Order it up from Northern Tool before the sale runs out.

    Get some food grade slicone spray. I got the LEM and have been known to use canola cooking spray.

    I lube the gears and threaded parts before and during stuffing (each refill).

    And after cleaning.
