LEM Grinder Plates, Stainless #8Rating:100%
Stainless Steel Meat Grinder Plates (reversible).
Note: A knife and plate develop a mated wear pattern as they operate together (same as a piston in an engine cylinder sleeve), so it's important to always keep them together as a set. When you reverse the plate to start using the new side, you should use a new knife. Using an unmatched knife/plate set will cause bad performance, rapid wear and possibly breakage. So you will normally want to have two blades for every plate.
LEM Stainless Grinder Knife #8Rating:96%
LEM makes their grinder knives with the highest standards for hardness and quality that are hard to find elsewhere. Made of stainless steel, each knife lasts longer than carbon and is resistant to rust.Important: Over time, a knife and plate develop uneven (but mated) wear patterns as they operate together (just as the pistons and cylinder sleeves in a car's engine do), so it's important to always keep them together as a set. When you replace a knife, you need to use a new plate with it (or flip to the new side of the...(More info)
