Meat grinder/Sauage stuffer problem suffing

Hello

I have one of these which grinds meat great, very happy so long as your ear defenders are in!! VERY NOISY..

But

The stuffing side of things is frustrating as the meat collects around the sausage plate and forces the meat through increasing small holes till the flow is slow and meat is getting mixed to a paste. I have even made my own plate which consists of nothing more than three wafer thin arms and a hole to hold the end of the screw. This provides the biggest possible area for the meat to flow through, but this even gets blocked eventually, after say 1kg of sausage meat.
pictured here at the very top.

I have tried without any stuffing plate at all so there is nothing to stop the meat and this works fantastic BUT is this causing excess wear to the machine? The meat forces the screw back into the gearing and possibly keeps it square enough not to worry about it, it does not seem to be making horrible metal on metal sounds.

SO

I am wondering, is it time to get a separate stuffer.

IMO, it's always time to get a separate stuffer!

Yes to what Phil and Paul said, i have a 5lb Grizzly vertical (also called a LEM and others) i have heard people complain about the nylon gears on these but if like me you dont make sausage every day its just fine.

I have one like this. It's a good piece of equipment and works well. However, it is very heavy for me to lift and handle, and quite bulky to store. I should have bought the 3 litre version, I may well do and pass this one on.

Jen the only difference bar 3kg in dimensions is 10cm in height between the 3lr and 5lr. I also was thinking kid where the hell am I going to keep this. :-)

But this seems to be the best option.

Ps

Now ordered and on its way from Germany to good old Blighty.

I'm sure you will enjoy using it. The difference between using a stuffer against a mincer attachment is quite a revelation.
