I just use the grinder attachment for my Kitchen Aid commercial motor mixer or the food processor. If I can find 1 that would do bones I will invest in it though. The grinder attachment was about $40 I think, but the mixer was $500. I have the 14 cup heavy duty Cuisinart food processor, it cost me $300 but has come down since then.

I second the attachment for the Kitchen-Aid. I don't do bones so it works perfect for any meat I've put into it. There are a lot of hand-cranked grinders that are great for bones, though. They're still quite expensive but they'll last forever.

I don't have a grinder, but there are a few recommendations on these sites:

Hi I bought a Northern Tools back in 2003 to 2004  time frame and love it.
It has worked really well grinding up chickens, rabbit and even turkey if you smash up the harder larger bones.
It has been a faith full work horse for us.

I have often wondered what I would do if it were to give up the ghost some day.
I actually looked at reviews a few years back cause I wanted to see if the options were still the same and IF NT was still the most highly recommended.
Well I found out they weren't as good being that they were being made in China or some such place now.
The quality had dropped quiet a lot from what I was reading.

But my best advice would be to search  the internet for groups and forums that talk about grinders I am sure you will come up with lots of them . I know I always did.
Its kind of a word game when ya start searching for something on line due to the fact you can reword your search many times and come up with totally different sites.
I haven't checked around on grinders in a while so I am not sure what is being recommended now but I am sure it wouldn't be hard to find out.

If you have any problems with it just drop me a pm and I'll see if I can come up with a few sites for you to check out.

We have really loved my NT and hope to have to have it for many years to come.
I think when I bought it I paid $89 for it.
But I am sure even the price of it has gone up by now.

Just my two cents.
