What does speed have to do with anything?
Most of the attachments or accessories for the K'Aid Stand Mixer call for you to set the mixer at a certain speed for use.
There ARE acually three types of grinders;
1. Hand crank operated.
2. Self-contained unit (has its own motor).
3. The accessory attachment for your stand mixer.
Yes, I've seen the Buffalo Chopper at work. I've even used one on several occassions.
It was a wide heavy stainless steel bowl that slowly rotates. And the blade is an S-shaped one that spins vertically on a horizontally-mounted pole.
