    I downsized awhile back. Used to do venison on the side and 50 pounds at a time was norm. Now the largest batches i do is 25 pounds and am realy trying to do smaller sausage batches. I also have a 5 pound verticle stuffer and that's plenty big. So you have equipment that suits your needs. I'm sure you will still turn out quality work, and the amount doesn't matter. Reinhard

    That' very similar to what I have. Except mine was my grandmas. She gave it to my mom 38 years ago. My mom passed it on to me when she bought her kitchen aid mixer with the grinder attachment. It's ground many pounds of meat, bread crumbs, cranberries and who knows what else. Something to be said about small and simple.
