The plastic auger snaps to the front of your metal auger. Seat your auger into the motor and the needle tube fits over the cyclone. The following i did this past summer on 10 lbs of sticks . I wrap a frozen sports wrap around the neck of the grinder to keep the heat down. Dont put your grinder neck in the freezer. Freezing and thawing can weaken the metal and cause stress fractures.
