4.0 out of 5 stars easy to clean, November 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Metal gears, easy to clean, sturdy and priced reasonable for the home sausage maker. Didn't give it 5 stars because therer should be a better range of tubes, handle needs to have a small bolt to hold it on (like manual meat grinders do), and primarily, it leaves 1/3# of meat at the bottom of the cylinder - probably not much can be done about that.

Even with those minor flaws, I would HIGHLY recommend this product..metal gears were a big selling point. Well made!

Just stuffed 3 test batches of new recipes and it worked like a champ!

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, August 4, 2014
Do NOT waste money on this book! While the concept for the book is good, there are some serious flaws. The editor either (a) has never huunted before, (b) never edited a book before, or (c) both a & b. The tips that occur right in the middle of a chapter are most annoying. The authors are, at best, vaugue about many, many aspects. The authors go on about how healthy venison is, yet the enclosed CD with recipes...well, not worth it. There are 50 recipes and I stopped counting at 17 JUST for stroganoff...and EVERYONE of those recipes called for: butter, shortening or even lard!!! AND copius recipes calling for CANNED soup, which is FUILL of sodium. Recipes are worthless!!

The pictures are pretty decent but they do not keep up with the text. Poor editing design. Also, the vension that is wrapped and labeled has a date of AUGUST on it (08)...who hunts in August? The authors praise the use of an electric grinder yet the there is only ONE picture of this machine and it's not even in the chapter where they discuss gridners!!! Their "processing table" show a machinist vise that has "stuff" (either metal shaving or saw dust, on it yet they talk about how important it is to have a clean work area.They do not even talk about what the primal cuts are!!!

I could go on and on. I am sorry I wasted the money. Save your money and go buy some more ammunition or better yet, a good knife for when you read/watch a GOOD lesson on processing, you'l have something worthwhle in your hands.

Spend the time you take reading this "book" and surf the internet. There are some great videos about skinning and processing and more GOOD venison recipes than would fill the latest "Joy of Coooking" book.

Check it out at your local library to see how much money you saved. Do not spend your money of this book. Again, there are far too many good and great resources on the internet than this "book".

OK, if you really like to cook, these are great additions to any kitchen. They also double as individual or couples dip bowls.

1.0 out of 5 stars LONG and not searchable, December 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Granted, this only cost $15 so don't expect professional quality - it would made a good You Tube Video.

There are some really good tips that you can learn/pick up, but they are selling their product (that's OK, I knew that), but the DVD is not searchable,I find this to be MOST annoying - you can't' get to the processing part without watching the field caping for a trophy buck part. or two OTHER parts.....parts of beginning sequences are in B/W, part of one segment, where they are processing a hindquater- the sound is so bad - sounds like it was recorded in big hollow auditorium...the sound is so bad in one sequence, that you could hear someone flush a toilet in the background! Maybe they are not selling enough knves to use at least a semi-professional videographer.

Since it's not searchable, it 's not worth the money - to me. There are too many free demos on You Tube...and there you don't mid hearing a toliet flush because you know it's someone's garage...not in a professional processing shop!!..

Save you're $15 on this DVD and go buy a new pair of hunting socks...you'll be better off.

This video turned me off so much due to the bad formatting and not being able to search and the random "commercials" of thier knives and dry rubs, that I will not be purchasing any of there other products...

Caveat emplor!!

Save another $150 and buy a REAL crossbow. This is a cheap lnock-off of a cheap Chinese bow. It doesn't hold up well and it's not even worth buying as an "intro" crossbow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A lot of fantastic information and written so the lay person (non-scientist) can understand. However, in all the years of his own research and his extensive review of others research (and condemnation in some cases) never once did the author mention the influence of invasive plant species on the habitat and how these organisms can drastically change the biodiversity.

While he does a good job in presenting his perspective of the overall "ecology of Lymes", I think the book fails to mention the plant community, in particular, the invasive species.

Overall, though it's worth the read as most people, in my opinion, have a ver skewed veiw of Lymes and what causes it and how it's transmitted. The author does do a good job in explaining MOST of the ecology of the balck legged tick.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORTHLESS, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although this kickstand DOES fit the EZ Racer recumbent, it CANNOT be used if you have a rear fender or if you have a rear rack. It alsl cannot be used if you have the EZ Racer Windstand unless you take the kickstand off.

I would NOT recommend this product. It's like the engineers designed it but never actaully put it on a real bike and never tested it with other accessories that LOTS of people put on their bikes.
