Re: Harbor Freight meat grinder
What worries me a little about the HF unit is that I will usually do at least 3 deer per year.
What I prefer to do, however, is bone the meat out and save it as boned trimmings until the seasons end, then do it all in one session (rather than haul out the grinder, do a deer, make and clean up the mess, and then start over when I get the next one). That makes for a lot of work if the grinder is slow.
The deal breaker on the HF unit is if I can't get a plate to do a more fine grind, though. My wife loves the 3/16" plate grind that's very fine, and won't be happy with a more coarse grind.
Taken all together, I'm kind of thinking I should just buck up and get a more robust grinder and be done with it.
