I'm looking around for meat grinders that can use manual or electrical power and will hold up for personal use.  Can anyone suggest a good brand/model?  Thanks for any help.  Rick

It's hard to find one that's both electric and manual. A few years back I got one from Northern Tool, powered by a wheel that can be turned either by hand or by a belt hooked up to a motor. It is now sold as the "Kitchener #32 Meat Grinder with V-Belt Pulley". I haven't used it yet because I haven't got around to killing a deer...

i got a few vintage cast iron meat grinders at some thrift stores and antique shops. both were under 20$ and work like a charm. the best part is there are tons of attachments for things other than meat in the same shops.

Ran and Hubert, thanks.  Ran, the one you described is very reasonably priced... but a motor fromt he same company (1 hp, 1300 rpm) is $300.  I suspect I can find a less expensive motor, to be sure, but I figger'd I would post this update just so folks know.
