OP your prep table/area/stuffer looks amazing. Wish i could have something like that.
That was just 15 pounds... by the time I gave a few packages away and cooked some up the next day that left me with 6 packages.
Pork was on sale for .99 so that was some cheap sausage.
CL is your friend
for stainless tables.
Ebay for an old Enterprise grinder that you can motorize.
Any one can make a water stuffer.

Pretty simple...sort of
Go to lowes and get a 6" pvc pipe, glue cap, and male clean out.
Glue it all together.
Tap a couple of fittings in the side at the bottom in the cap... I used 1/2" this is your water in and water out.
You will need to control the water in and out so you will need a valve on both the in and out side. I used a foot controlled switch to run a water solenoid so I can stuff hands free.
Go to a kitchen store and/or McMasterCarr and get some 1/2 cutting board type material and some 1/4 Silicon Orings, I got some that were 6" or a bit under that, cut 3 circles to rough size of 6 1/8" of the plastic.
Have a friend with a lathe cut the 6" down to size and turn an oring grove in them also. ( I have been told that this can be down by hand on a drill press but I have not tried it )
Now for the lid you sausage tube you have a few options -
I over did it and used sanitary fitting sandwiched up under the clean out lid.
You can use 1 or 3/4 pvc fittings and tap a hole in the lid as an option.
I think the simplest way would be to drill a hole in the lid, about 1" and push a plastic tube in through it so the collar of the tube would be on the inside of the lid...
I am working on version 2 and 3 currently, bigger and better
This one was just a proof of concept design really.
I can post some details in another thread of someone wants to see more of the current and future stuffers.
You can google water powered stuffer and hydro stuffer and find some good stuff.
There is one video on a floridasportsman forum that was great DIY source.
Using the 2" sanitary fittings and a #8 sausage stuffer tube set was my idea though... I did not copy that one !
