When you say "a week" are you doing it in one sitting or more then one?

I would love to make a signature sausage. One day. I must travel to Lockhart Tx to test Kreuz and Smitty's and Black's.

Seems like I remember seeing it...but it was a long time ago. It looked just like Eyetalian sausage to me.

Twice a week for now.

I think a 1/2 horse model won't last a long time if your really going to make that much sausage every week. As soon as you get out of the 1/2 horse models the price shoots up drastically. I'd get a separate stuffer, this is the one I have http://www.grizzly.com/products/5-lb-Sa ... ical/H6252, it works great. Look on craigslist for a used grinder heavier then 1/2 horse.

Re: Had nothing to do today

Nothern Tool is usually a good source for meat grinders. I got the 1 HP SS model just sitting around. Too lazy to use it. Would consider parting with it for the above mentioned sum. Thing weighs 90 lbs. Shipping cost when I got it was around 40 bucks. Big Dave bought a smaller one and really liked it last I checked. The one I have takes plates for a #12 Hobart. It cant use Hobart knives because the shaft is bigger..but it has two sets of blades which come with it. Several of us bought them at the same time. I think one fellow..seems like maybe Frank Boyer had his shaft milled down to the size where it will take the Hobart knives. I also sent off and snagged an extra large plate for it..half inch holes seems like.

Re: Had nothing to do today

Thanks guys. Nick, I have that stuffer but there is no way I'm taking it to work! Kids might use it for .........well God knows what.
Wheeler, thanks for the offer. I'm going to go tool around Northern Tool for a bit. I'll run that deal you offered past the man with the checkbook.
