This site has me hooked. Since joining not long ago I have learned wealth of info from all of you, so first of all thank you all. I have been using my wife's KA mixer with the grinding attachment and with the help on this site got it working pretty good but really wanted something a little better. I just got my new LEM #5 grinder and I love it. For the amount of meat that I grind it should serve me well for a long time. It grinds as fast as I can feed it and looks great. I will be using it alot and look foward to the next grind.
