Default homemade sausage stuffer?

I have the kitchenaid stuffer attachment and I've just about given up on the damn thing- the plastic pusher is too small for the hopper chute and the sausage just squirts back up around it. As a grinder, it's good, but the stuffer sucks.

I've seen some stuffers out there but $100 seems to be on the low end. It's such a simple mechanism, isn't there a decent DIY answer? I'd like to start making dry cured sausages, but right now I'm stuck making fresh patties b/c of my inability to stuff the casings.

There are quite a few plans out there for a water stuffer.

please share, I've been searching google and all I found were people talking about how plans exist somewhere out there, and one massive 60 lb monster stuffer... I'm thinking more 5-10 lbs.

Give me a few minutes. I used to have some saved but that is at home. I would reccomend doing it atleast 15-20 pounds, if not larger though, if you are building one.

Well, I have found some pictures but no actual build instructions or parts lists or anything. I will try and find the links I had saved at home.

You can save some bucks by getting a horn stuffer, but they will just make you made you didn't spend the extra $20.

This is a great stuffer. I use mine very often.

Started with the attachment on my grinder and hated it. Moved on to a horn stuffer, hated it! Got the Grizzly and love it!! Cut my stuffing time by more than 50% and I can easily do it by myself without bothering SWMBO to help....

That grizzly stuffer is great. Here's my son and his friend using it... how hard could it be?
