At the end, we made six sausage links. The center image is of the grinder, its motor and the drawer with all the parts. (My dad assembled the whole contraption. It works from a peddle.) The star shaped items are the knives and the round face-plates with the holes determine the size of the meat being extruded. The face-plate with the larger holes is for soppressata and the one with the smaller holes is for salsiccia – sausage. The image on the right is Rick bolting the grinder back onto the cabinet.
