Mincing fresh clams

I love clams and I often chop them finely for different recipes. This is tedious work. Does anyone have a suggestion to make chopping clams easier? Food processors do not work as the clam parts can be stringy and will not chop. Thanks.

I'll be interested to read any suggestions, because as tedious as it may be, using a knife is the one sure way to 'get it right'.
Restos have available to them, industrial size equipment to chop onions and other veggies, but never heard of a pro clam mincer.
Suggestion: if you have a good seafood resto near you, ask the kitchen staff what they do. Most staff are willing to tell you how they do it.

My Mom used a hand crank meat grinder. It was great for stuffing fresh clams we caught outselves. I believe they are fairly cheap.
