I was trying to grind strips of pork fat to make venison sausage. No bone, no gristle, just room temp fat. The grinder started making crazy noises, pieces of the ring flew off. Upon examination of the grinder housing, augar, blade, the whole works was in pieces, those pieces that were now in my sausage mix. When I called customer service, they could have cared less because I was out of warranty. I wasn't calling for replacement, I was calling to report stress fracture under normal use. Beware. Buy a better grinder from someone else.
