Default how can i rig my electric meat grinder to a barley crusher

i bought one of these off craigslist http://www.amazon.com/Cucina-Pro-1718-CucinaPro-Electric/dp/B000IZ9832

i took it apart, removed the wormscrew. the end of the worm screw has a hex socket

what would be the easiest way of join it with the 3/8" rod on the barley crusher?

thanks!

*edit*
i guess i need some couplers from mcmaster
3/8" hub no keyway 6408K133
Buna Spider 6408K74

not sure what to use on the meat grinder side though

what about a socket bit? What's the size of the hex on the grinder?

Sorry to revive an old thread but I had the same idea and this turned up in a search. Have you had any success with this?
