Looking for old-fashion meat gringer!

Can any of you chowhounds help me? I'm looking for an old-fashion meat grinder like my Mom used to have way back when. The kind that you attach to a kitchen counter (or she attached it to a pull-out cutting board). It had several different discs to use depending on the type of grinding. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    They're at your better hardware store, I think at Cliff's and Cole Hardware both carry them. If you want an antique one, Cookin' on Divisidero always has a few. But the design hasn't changed.

      I've also seen them at Sur la Table (probably more expensive there!) and at Rainbow Grocery.

        Thank-you one and all!
        As usual, "Chowhounds" are the best!

      I have recently seen a Polish-made model, just like mom used to have, at the cookwares store in Stonestown, called Lechters I think.

        Check out Cumberland General Store. It is full of stuff that "Mom used to have" (and plenty more that she didn't).

        Their website is showing a blank screen for me but they have an excellent catalog that can be ordered from their 800 number: 800.334.4640
