Won on Ebay April 07, 2013 for only $9.99 plus shipping of $16.09. Seller was cwdchk, firstname.lastname@example.org, in Portsmouth, Virginia. The auction was over on a Sunday afternoon at 6:30 pm and I guess no one was paying attention. I was also the only bidder. Coincidental that today we ground our first meat and made sausage for the first time and them won this larger grinder for only $9.99.
I asked the seller for info on the history of the grinder and he responded: ” I bought it at an estate auction many years ago cause I like antiques and have had my own shops in the past for which I still have boxes and boxes of inventory.”
