    You are killing me. I think I stalked the old Hobart KAs on eBay for 2+ years and then an amazing deal came by and I got a new one.

    I'm always looking for a vintage hand crank model, I figure if it's still working I can get another 30 years out of it

    I like this idea. Metal attachment for Kitchen aid should be plenty good enough.

    The Lem units are very well made and I have never heard anyone say they regretted buying one. My pal Tom has this one and its a pleasure to use.

    I have the KA with the grinder and although I don't make a lot of tube steak it works fine for me. I've made regular sausage and even some frankfurters!

    Thunderbrid makes great countertop grinders. They are a prosumer/commercial product. Not crazy expensive, about the same price as a kitchenaid with the attachments and a deco sausage stuffer. All metal internals and comes with a sausage stuffing attachment. Totally worth the investment if you grind a lot and are into sausage making. Sorry if it's over the top, but the fact it is a grinder and stuffer in one, makes the price more appealing. And because it's motor driven, it's easier to operate by yourself.

    I was lucky enough to inherit a 40+ year old Chop Rite #22 cast iron grinder. Chop Rite still makes cast iron grinders the same way they were made 100+ years ago. If you happen to find a Chop Rite or enterprise grinder in an antique shop you can still buy new parts and plates and blades are readily available at some retailers
