We started when I got my grandmothers hand crank grinder. You don't have to go nuts buying every thing in sight to get started. (witch is easy to do) Take a look here www.sausagemaker.com
I would recommend a #10 hand grinder and stuffing tubes to get started, I also recommend the book by Rytek Kutas they sell. Making sausage isn't complicated. Plus it's alot of fun!
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that,
you've got it made. -Groucho Marx (1890-1977)
