Got an Awesome Deal

Post by Pure Mahem » Sat Oct 18, 2008 10:09 pm

Went to an estate sale today and I got a table mounting hand grinder with 3 attachments in mint condition for......are you ready for this.........ten whole cents! The thing looks like it came right out of the box and I know its a good one because it has "MADE IN THE USA" forged in the metal. Can you say score!!!! I can grind wheat, meat and horseradish whooohoooo!!!! :mrgreen:

Nice score for sure. A whole ten cents, you ought to be ashamed of yourself :P

Has anyone ever seen an attachment for one of those that would stuff sausage casings?

Nice score PM. I see them periodically at the thrift store. They don't fetch much on ebay. Ten cents, man, i bet you pockets are much lighter now. :lol: I got lazy when i scored an Oester electric grinder and the came across a couple grinding attachments for my Hobart Kitchen Aid Mixer. I think I might even have a grinder attachment for an Oester mixer if anyone has one. I do ALL my shopping at the thrift stores and yard sales as it gives you that great feeling to score a useful item on the cheap. ;)
Congrats Pure Mayhem ! :mrgreen:
Oh yeah Zelph, I have the sausage funnels(big and small) for my grinder attachment. I also H a F.B. Dick? Hand crank stuffer that we USE to use at work and will hold 15-20lbs., maybe, of ground meat. My cost....Nadda :P It doesn't get mush better than that. You just have to be in the right place at the right time.! :D

Pure Mayhem, have you ever had "ham loaf" ? Great stuff. Now when you see whole or half hams on a good sale, you can have some sliced and leave some to grind for a ham loaf. :mrgreen:

Makes my heart feel good to you guys getting into some great deals and some really good eatin.

I've never seen a stuffer funnel in the thrift stores that came along with the grinders. I saw them for the kithen aids.

I had a vintage sausage stuffer at a point in time. Traded it for something, can't remember what :roll: :roll:

DialUp is doable under many circumstances. You're a man of patience and Patience is a virtue ;) You're ahead of the game :D

I see juice extractors a few times ayear at the thrift stores. They are operated by cranking a handle just like a meat grinder. They have cone shaped strainers that extract juice and hold back the seed of whatever is being juiced. With a little modification I think it could be made to stuff sausage :o Just a thought for the heck of it ;)
