Default Hand Grinder Recommendation

I am thinking about buying a hand grinder to process some venison.

Does anyone have any recommendations on make, model and where you purchased it? Any guidance appreciated!

The more rust preventive coating it has the better, ex, nickel plated, stainless steel etc. Stay away from plastic and when your done, clean , dry and spray with a food grade silicone available through Cabella's. I always had good sucess with anything bought from the Sausage Maker> Although I have their elec. grinder I'm sure their hand ones are of the same quality. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for.

I use a size #22 and it does the job fairly quickly. I wouldn't recommend going smaller than that. For once or twice a year use it's hard to justify spending the money for an electric.

I agree, but once you start dabling in butchering your own deer and making your own burgers, then comes , Sausage, Jerkey, Kielbasy, Bologna, Salami, before you know it your grinding down chickens to make your own chicken roll and with whats left you make pillows......... It's addicting and funnnnnnn. So why start out with a hand grinder when you can use that money to offset the price of an electric. I got tired of buying things twice, now I just buy once, for ex. I talked myself out of buying a hand sausage stuffer for 70$ and put that towards the 5 lb verticle hand crank model 215. so in reality it was only 145 more. Also I can make hotdogs easier with it.
