    Lady at the garage sale hated this "pastry dough" mixer, so she had it listed for $25.... I got it for $20!

    Looks to be a 20# LEM style. Very heavy and in great shape.



    C'mon New Years Eve sausage making Fest!

    Dave, I'm quite sure that all of the sausage stuff we buy from big box stores are made in the same factory....By under paid people...

    However, I'm tickled with this find!

    CB, Works great for large batches, nice find!
     
  11. Yes, good find! I've had the same LEM #25 mixer for several years now and it works very well.  If you have an LEM grinder, it will attach and you don't have to crank by hand.

    Well, I broke it in last night. 10 pounds of pepperoni, 5 pounds of SS, and 5 pounds of chicken sausage.

    Works good for the 10 pound batches, but falls a bit short on the 5 pounders.

    Also, any tricks to keeping the meat from sticking to the sides once the myosin releases?
