I am a tool junkie.
I have tried some sausage stuffers, the one I have now is a 5lb vertical, I like it, just wish I had bought the LEM with SS gears, did not know the difference when I bought the one I have now, which came from Northern, a place famous for never having any replacement parts for their products.
Cruising Ebay, I found a new to me stuffer, 3L, 7 lb capacity, all SS , 2 speed with 4 SS tubes, rack and pinion metal gears and delivered for less than $120.
I shall try to post a link, if it deos not work go to Ebay, search sausage stuffers, I found it was the 3rd listed, you may get something else.

    is this the stuffer?  The 3L is $118.95.  From a response another person left, Weston parts fits these stuffers but I can't confirm this.  It looks like a nice stuffer.  There looks to be a variety of sellers selling the same stuffer, Amazon looks to sell this same one as well.

  My brother has the Kitchener 5lb sausage stuffer from Northern Tool, is this the one you have also?  It does have plastic gears...but he's made alot of sausage with that thing with no problems!  Hopefully I'll be able to buy it from him soon...he's wanting to get a 15lb stuffer.  The performance of this stuffer is well worth the money...especially if you're currently using, or thinking of using, a KitchenAid for sausage stuffing.  For under $100...it's the right tool for the job at a good price...that being said, the one on Ebay looks to be of nicer quality...but I've got no experience with that particular one.

  If you do end up ordering it, or if anyone else here has bought one...I'd love to hear your feedback on the product.
Enjoy The Food!

I have the 5lb from Northern, it does a nice job, however, I have read several reviews from owners who have broken the gears, I do know Northern does not have replacement gears, however, I have read that the LEM SS gears do fit, so if mine does break the gears, I shall buy a set from LEM.
I do not know anyone with the $118 all SS one, but it does appear to be a good one, I like the all SS gears, the 2 speed feature and the SS tubes.
Those features would remove all the dislikes with the one I have now.
I do use food grade silicone grease on the gears and the O-ring on the pusher piston.
I never owned one, but did use some of the horn type stuffers , the ones I used put about as much back out the top as they put in the casings.

Most break the nylon gears because they put too much pressure on them once the plunger hits bottom in an effort to squeeze every last bit of meat out of the stuffer.

The plain or the 2 speed type.

   My brother is buying the 15lb 2 speed stuffer, I'm going to get his 5lb Northern Tool stuffer, which is a more than adequate stuffer as far as I'm concerned.

      Because the stuffer was shipped to my house I did inspect it before he picked it up...it looks nice...and large.  He has only used it once so far on some salami stuffed in beef middles...he liked how it operated and brought me his old one :)  I guess we're both winners!
