That thing looks awesome, and heavy.
I wish my wife found things like that when she shops.
no shopping this was a freebie
for size reference plus it hot out
I got one too. From my dads stuff when he died. Just sittin up in the garage since I have access to stuffers at work. Have fun with it.
If you need parts butcherpacker.com has them.
Great freebie! I like older stuff.
Still a perty darn good stuffer. Some folks have a problem with the meat oozin up over the plate an fix that by cuttin a piece a poly cuttin board what fits a bit tighter in the drum.
Get that all cleaned up an start stuffin some sausage!
Good idea on the poly, i have a peice just waiting for a use
Is that cast iron?
What you have there is about 100 years of classic sausage stuffer.....an Enterprise 8 quart from the looks of it. Clean her up, bolt her down and put her to use!
To save on cleanup, try using 2 gallon zip lock bags. Snip off a corner and pull it through the spout hub and lock the stuffing tube down over it:
If you take off the stuffing plate, the push screw will come completely out, and you can unbolt the top to effectively completely dismantle it for cleaning. The screws might need a good wire brushing to get it working smoothly. To prevent any further rust, give it a light wipe down with Crisco and season it like a cast iron skillet. The decorative paint scheme they used is a work of art.
great find... You are living the high life my friend!
If you know what's good for you, I would "Find" something for her!
Thanks for posting the pics of the baggie trick I was gonna ask about that. I end some points when I'm not on my blackberry
Now that stuffer is really way cool. Now that thing will work longer then any of the ones that are built today.
I would follow this advice!!! Also, great find on her behalf, great addition to your arsenal on your behalf!!!!!
Great score! Heres a pretty good blog that details an Enterprise refurb.http://jujube.typepad.com/jujube/2006/12/index.html
