Our extended family has an LEM that is community property. It's like 2 horse power. We also have a 5# sausage stuffer.

I have the cheapest lowest powered LEM sold. It is exactly the type everyone warns you not to buy. I have ground over a dozen elk and, don't know how many deer, probably 5-6 antelope. The key is to let the grinder do the work. Always have your meat on the edge of freezing. The warmer the trim is, the more issues with the grinder.
I think they sell the grinder I have for around $100. The first time Sportsman's whse went under, I paid $50 each for three of them. I kept one. We gave my son one and I gave the third to a friend for Christmas. My friend broke his after 3-4 years. My son still has and uses his and so do I.
The problem with using your wifes food processor is they all have nylon gears and sometimes plastic housings too. You want all metal.

I have been really happy with this unit dollar for dollar I don't think it gets much better its not a fancy stainless unit or anything but has steel gears and reverse it rips through geese faster then I think anyone would need..it takes me a lot longer to cube up the meat then it does to grind it..

The cheapest electric grinder I've seen is the one from harbor freight. It is around $50 normal price but goes on sale periodically and then you can use their coupon. My "friend" told me there is a 25% off coupon in the newest playboy :thumbsup: . My dad and I each have that grinder and it works fine, just a bit on the slow side. It comes with a sausage stuffer attachment.

Shoot, I've been nursing a plastic Rival through three or four deer a year since college in the '70s. But even having shimmed the spring for tighter fit of blades and grinding plate, I have to use the course plate and pass it and the blades on a wet stone fairly often if I don't want to fight silver skin, the great, great majority of which I remove before hand. Looking forward to breaking out a new #5 LEM during the split and seeing if its as good as its reviews. Going to be sorely disappointed if it doesn't simplify things.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
