Old Sears Grinder

Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by pawoodswalker, Oct 27, 2012.

  1. Bought this old grinder in the original wood crate that it was shipped in. It is a Model 5540, I searched all over the net and cant find any info. I put 5 lbs of meat thru it in seconds so cant wait  to try more.

     Will probably grind for a lot of years. I like the gear box, mine has pulleys and a belt. When I have a lot of grinding, I always pull out my old stand by.
     
     
  4. It's a sears Roebuck company, got it cheap. I think it will out live me .

    Neat find!

    I'm wondering if it originally came with a motor or if the motor was to be supplied by the user?

    Have you tried contacting Sears to see if they could give you any info and history on it?

    Good luck and good smoking.
     
  6. Pretty sure the motor is original. The motor says kenmore on it

    It sure looks like a fun grinder to own and use.

    Good luck in your search for the history.

    Good luck and good smoking.
     
  8. Still haven't found anything on this yet, called sears and got no help.

    I like seeing and using "old stuff" especially when original condition and functionality has been restored.

    I have found in the "Hoarder's Room"....lol.....my Grandmother's Universal Grinder.  I just tried to take a pic...camera needs to be charged.  It's a hand crank..and needs just a tiny bit of cleaning.  Was talking to Hubby about this last nite.  She used to make Ham and Chicken Salad with that thing.  It clamps to the counter and goes great.  I have used it but it was years ago.  Yipeee...another toy!

    Love the condition of yours, pawoodswalker!
     
  17. Not sure How old it is, I cant find anything online about it, But It works great.

    A person can never have to many toys

    Here is what I found.  I love yours...but mine will work in a power outage....Bring on the Zombies!  (giggle)



    Our entire City was without power today for about 2 hours.  Reason for the left-handed joke.

    My mom had one exactly like it; she'd grind up leftover ham for ham salad.  Of course, dad had the store grinder downstairs in the meatroom but it wouldn't grind such a small amount so she used that.  She'd grind up pork hocks and saurkraut too in it (deboned, of course, after she'd cook the meat off them.  She'd grind the skin, fat and meat and kraut and make a sandwich spread with a slice of liverwurst on it too! Absolutely delicious with some horseradish and some tomato soup!)
