The Harbor Freight in town has it for $25, with only a medium plate:

Scares me that it's so cheap, but figured I'd ask, since I'm saving pennies for a grinder.

Thanks!

IMO, you'll burn that motor up in no time. If price is the biggest consideration, you'd be better off w/ a hand crank model than spending any money on that one.

Gotta agree with allsmoke here. I've been through several similar models. Besides burning the motor out it will not work well as a stuffer.
