    My Cabelas 1 hp grinder has been a little sluggish lately. She's gone through a lot of meat since I picked her up about 6 years ago..... Time to freshen her up

    Look what I have at the back of the shop at work..............[​IMG]

    4.5mm plate looks a little worn

    All cleaned up 

    7mm looking bad too

    All cleaned up

    Made a jig to hold the knife.... The blade didn't look like it needed to be sharpened until I sharpened it... What a big difference. .....After all the surface grinding i realized that precision is not a part of a grinder. Everything was off up to 0.020 but now its all straight and true....

    Now that's a sharp blade

    Now I'm ready for sausage season... Time to get busy with the stock pile of meat Ive been saving

    Thanks for looking

    right on,, it does make a difference to have the blade sharp., I need to get mine in shape now that the "season" is upon us again.

    I SO ENVY your surface grinder!  Those are handy for a LOT of things.

    Makes my granite and paper look primitive!

    Great work sir, I may have to call in a favor from a friend that has one here local.
