most of the electric grinders on the market I have looked at are built extremely weak and cheaply, yet cost way too much. Not a fan of ss blades, plastic gears, underpowered motors, proprietary parts, etc. What I use is an older (but still available) #32 hand grinder. It comes with a pulley that allows you to add an electric motor. I used an old furnace blower motor stepped down with a jackshaft.

parts are commonly available almost anywhere, and even a 1/4hp motor will put out several horsepower at the grinder when properly geared. I can grind anything as fast as I can feed it. at $70 new, it is still a bargain.
