Anyone know anything about Meat Grinders?

I'm looking to pick up a meat grinder so I can grind up some old moulds I have and use the silicone as "filler" in the new moulds I'm making.

Does anyone know anything about them?

I see listings like "#3 meat grinder" and "#2" "#10" etc.

Are they different degrees of fine-ness? Does a #2 grinder make smaller pieces than a #3 or a #10?

I want something that makes smaller chunks obviously. Other wise I'd just use a knife and risk cutting off a finger. :)

Thanks in advance for any info.

Are there any of the "#" designations on your grinder?

That coffee ground consistency is exactly what I want.

Do you out a buty coat down first and then add the liquid/ground silicone, or do you add it in the full pour?

Thanks.

I've used the old meat/sausage hand grinders and they work well. However the reason you don't see these available in appliance stores anymore is because they have been replaced by...




Mini - processors are as cheap as $5. I got a full size new one at a church bazaar for $3.

No way. I was just in the market for something like this. My old hand grinder (not that it grinds hands) snap-broke, and I've been looking for an electric one. The only one I've found was about $100.00 at Beds Baths and beyond. If this Mini processor can do the trick, I'm picking one up ASAP.
