Has anyone used the LEM Meat grinders? I have been using the attachment on my Hobart mixer 20QT, but it does not quite do the job as weel as I would like. IE: clogging of some of the holes, not uniform grind etc. I'm not sure if this is due to sloppy tolerances of the die plates and blade or not. I always chill the grinder and make sure the meat is cold usually start off on a 3/4 die and go down to a 3/16. I'm curious if the commercial grinders are any better with this? I have been looking at the LEM 780 3/4 hp unit.

Is the attachment for the Hobart 20 qt. mixer a Hobart brand attachment?
If it is, they usually work without trouble.
Are you cutting the meat into small cubes?
I use matched pairs of plates and knives so that the two will naturally lap together for a perfect fit.
