Try a pvc pipe and caulk gun and those cake icing piping nipples?

I've never tried it, but I'm just thinking out loud.

Also, a cake icing piping bag (or just use the tips and a ziploc bag) might work.

Do you mean something like this?

This is powered by the water pressure from a garden hose. The pump is to suck the piston back down.

Cabela's Commercial-Grade Electric Grinders

I bought a grinder w/the stuffing tubes from Cablea's

No need for a seperate stuffer.

Check out some farm sales or yard sales out in the country. Look for an old fashoned cast iron lard press. Works great.

This looks like a job for................................NORCO..... Who else could make this thing and make it work and make it cheap.....

Im starting to see something like a 2 way piston that is driven by air pressure. PVC would be fine for something like this too. a ball valve to control the output ( Sausage) and maybe a quick connect airhose to return the pusher ( piston) to the bottom once the supply is exhausted at Top Dead Center. The piston would perhaps best be a solid piece of UHMW that could have some ring grooves cut into it for O rings.... Except for the piston ( initial thought) the whole thing could be done in about an hour of quality time at Homie Depot

Will get on it. would think C02 would be safer than air. If you have a piston that is displaced by air you could not keep from contaminating it unless you have a bladder. Ever seen the liquid that comes out of a compressor?
