I got a Game Winner meat grinder #8, but it did not come with cutting blade. Do you need this to grind meat?

Can you post a picture of your grinder and (if possible) of the piece you know it's missing. My instinct is to say yes, you do need the cutting blade to grind the meat. – Laura Nov 14 '12 at 16:25

Here is the relevent description on a site selling that particular meat grinder:

The Game Winner™ Hunting Gear #8 Grinder grinds up to 4 lb. of meat per minute and features a powder-coated cast aluminum body, 3, 4.5, and 7 mm stainless-steel cutting plates and a stainless-steel cutting blade* for durability. The Cam-Lock locking mechanism and thermal reset button offer safe operation, while the feet-forward design helps prevent tipping. Full-power grind, reverse and off modes. 400-watt motor.

It definitely looks like you'll need the cutting blade and cutting plates.
