Grinder Replacement Blades

Just got a small #5 Electric Grinder. I was wondering how often do you replace the blade on it? I used it on 3 deer so far, still seems to grinding OK, but wanted to check. The blades are definately not as sharp as they were.

Re: Grinder Replacement Blades

they are cheap to replace...if you think they need replaced then do so. I've never heard of or had luck sharpening them myself. might as well go with stainless plates when you replace. should be able to get a full kit with blade and 3 plates for 20-25 bucks

Re: Grinder Replacement Blades

your blades and plates will last longer if you match your blade with a plate and keep it together. More cost upfront but they will last years this way, if your a DIY butcher

Re: Grinder Replacement Blades

You can sharpen them on a flat surface. I use a piece of glass and emory paper medium grit. Sharpen both the blade and the side of the plate toward the can tell when they are sharp by spinning the blade on the plate. Three deer a year just touching up when needed a blade and plate will last your lifetime
