    Now I would like to see this grinder and I could advise you. I would like to know a couple of other things maybe like what the grinder is made of, are the gears plastic or metal. Pictures please.

    well I found a lem # 8 575 watt on craiglist today.  for the $50 price tag I couldn't pass it up.  brought it home tonite and gave it a try. 

    I ground up about 3 pounds of hare meat (alaskan rabbits) and mixed it in with about 3 pounds of 80/20 hamburger.  made burgers out of some it tonight and it came out great.  the grinder performed well.  granted it wasn't alot of meat but for the small project I had it worked great.
