I was able to find food grade grease at Grainger.com. It was Super Lube. The grinder now nice and quiet. For any one with the same problem first clean out the old grease from the gear box as best as you can. I used a small screwdriver. Remove the motor and mind the commutator brushes. They can be a pain. I bought the 6 oz. tube of Super Lube. Squeeze the lube in the bearing hole of the motor shaft. This will force out much of the old grease remaining in the gear box. Reassemble the grinder and go for it! Mine works fine.
I just became the owner of a vintage Magic Hostess grinder that belonged to my Aunt and as a child I watched her grind meat 50 years ago and now looking for info came across the post by Dan H., Dan H. I too would love to receive a copy of that owners manual if possible?
Hi, I also have a Model 5600 but what I am looking for are the blades for it. Does anyone know where I can get them?
