The pictures are of a meat plunger that I duplicated from the one that was included with the meat grinder. The picture #5 is the original plunger and the picture #6 is the end of the original plastic plunger showing a hole in it. My son-in-law and grandson are deer hunters and they use the grinder quite often. As can be seen the original plunger has a whole in it and there is meat inside this plunger. My son0in-law ask me if I could make one and I told him yes. Of course as a beginner wood worket I didn’t know how it would turn out. I started with log (variety of wood is unsure) and worked it down to as close to the size of the original plunger and of course mine does not have a whole in the end. I sanded it to a very smooth finish and coated it with Mineral Oil. It turned out fairly good for an amateur.
