Hog Ring Pliers

Post by Rick » Thu Oct 02, 2014 19:36

I've got a pair of the Bostitch S19 automatic hog ring pliers that I believe uses a 3/4" ring which I bought from Butcher Packer years ago.

When using them on a large beef bung cap, they really don't go around the twisted end. Instead, the ring ends seem to cut into the casing causing a tear in the twist. It's almost like the ring is just a tad bit small for the twist of casing. Any recommendations from you big casing pros?

Bob, that sounds good and using the butcher's knot.
