I chose the words I used, and didn't use, very carefully.

Before using the stuffer one of my concerns is how to keep it from moving all over the place. It comes with clamps, but our counter doesn't make that as an attractive an option as it could be.

I decided I needed figure out a way to bolt it down without putting holes in the counter at the sink.

Today I bought a 2x2 sheet of oak plywood. I have been looking at various options and some of my ideas got very spendy. The plywood was reasonable. I also picked up two more cutting boards. We use one of these as an insert on one side of the sink since it has grooves and we need flat. (Kathleen's idea and it has worked wonderfully). With the way the sink is made these will sit in a groove over the sink and give me a long flat surface, with the cut down plywood base under the stuffer. This all sounds good in theory, so tomorrow I am going to try it out.

Once the plywood was cut down and drilled for the mounting holes I washed it in the sink and now have some mineral oil on it. Works for cutting boards, hopefully it works for this. If need be I can lay out some wax paper or wrap it in plastic wrap.

I will take some pictures tomorrow of the set up and report back with how it works.

Kathleen wanted kielbasa so I have about 10 pounds of pork shoulder cut and ready for the grinder tomorrow. I have hog casings in the fridge. I plan on having kielbasa and sauerkraut (from the crock in the basement) on Monday when she gets back from seeing her Mom. Don't tell... it is a surprise.

Were you able to countersink the mounting hardware?

I would suggest a bath tub mat underneath to keep it from sliding. Sturdy and washable.

I did countersink the mounting holes underneath. That will have the threads up and I have wing nuts to make it all easy to assemble/disassemble.

I have some black spongy rolled stuff I got in the shelf paper aisle at Lowes that I use for nonslip that works pretty well.

I made the plywood just the right size that it wedges between the stove lip and the soap dispenser. It goes back to the backsplash and right to the front edge. I think I will be able to use my hip to help keep it from moving as well.

I can also get the clamps out and use them for the plywood. I do have to take a drawer out, but there is nothing in that drawer I would use during sausage making.
