Okay, I found this Hamilton Beach model 1MPU at my favorite little junk shop. It's an electric meat grinder, salad maker, and can opener. It does it all! Best of all, the parts are all there and it works! I do need to fix the cord, it has a place right next to where it goes into the white base unit where the wire is showing. I'll most likely just cut it off and rewire the cord. Out of curiosity, I looked these up on eBay. Wow, what a find! There was one on eBay last I looked that they were asking $70 for. The finish on the base unit isn't perfect, but wow, even with taking off for the paint nicks, it's still worth a decent amount. My favorite part? I got it for $3!
