Jim, thanks for the additional input. I would love to sort out what is going on. just talked with hubby again, and he is confident of the plastic retaining ring and its placement on the back of the grinder screw.
here is the description of the unit I bought:
LEM Products W779 #8 Stainless Steel .35 HP Electric Meat Grinder is the perfect size if you are going to grind a few deer a year. Don’t let the size of this grinder fool you. It’s all most people will ever need. Grinds approximately 240 pounds an hour. Standard grinder features and accessories: All stainless steel motor housing, all metal gears with roller bearings, heavy duty handle for easy moving, 110 volt, permanently lubricated motor, built in circuit breaker, stainless steel knife, head, auger and meat pan 11 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ deep, stainless steel coarse (3/8″), fine (3/16″) and stuffing plates, 3 stuffing tubes (3/8″, 3/4″, 1 1/4″) and meat stomper. Two year factory warranty. Weighs 36 pounds. ETL certified.
IMO “few deer a year” sounds like a machine I should not be having to baby.
Anyone have comments in the chilled grinder components or the partially frozen meat?
