    Right after I had gotten my grinder/stuffer from Northern Tool I got a chance to go by a Bass Pro Shops on a trip. Well, I knew I wanted a stuffing plate after hearing comments here about how they helped out if you were going to use a grinder as a stuffer too, but since I didn't know what size it was (all I had done was take it out of the box to make sure the parts were there so far) so I just guessed and got the 5# LEM brand. It's too small in diameter. It was 2" and mine now that I've checked is 3".

    I also picked up a pack of 17mm snack stick casings while I was there thinking Slim Jims (YUM!) but come to find out that the grinder didn't come with a 3/8" stuffing tube. Batting 1000 now on impulse buys! [​IMG]

    I'm sure whenever I get back to BPS I can match things up, but I was wondering if anyone knows which LEM plates would fit mine so I can just order them online. Are any of them 3"? Maybe the 10#?

    A no. 10 is 2 3/4" a no.22 is 3 1/4" and a 32 is 3 15/16". Hope this helps.

    Kingudaroad showed me here http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...70_36989_36989

    that mine has 2 3/4" plates and NOT 3" plates. I went back to check and sure enough, that's why they came up with the phrase "measure twice, cut once".[​IMG]

    So, I'm looking for 2 3/4" attachments.

    And based on what Troski just posted, I'm looking for the 10# parts. Thanks!

    This May Help You, It sounds like you have a #12 Grinder but you need to measure for sure...

    The 10/12 has the 2 3/4" so I think that's the one I'll need. Thanks for the info!

    I see they have the separator plate that I was looking for. Any big difference in springing for the stainless version besides it not rusting?

    Bummer though it doesn't look like they have the 3/8" stuffing tubes, either in the set or individually.

    Found both here at BPS. https://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/s...OrderCalculate

    They used the steel ones for years before stainless was ever used so either is okay only difference is price unless you are using for commercial use...

    Saw your reply right as I was digging out my BPS credit card. Found the universal tube kit that included the 3/8" tube along with a form of the plate I was looking for in the same kit. And all including shipping for $15.94. At BPS it was going to be $19.98 before shipping. And I get two extra tubes in the kit.
    [​IMG]for the help and for saving me some bucks!
