Excellent!  Any day now I'm going to get the pasta roller for my Kitchenaid. Last hand rolled batch was not very impressive.   mjb.
The Kitchen Aid grinder is a bit wimpy, good for occasional use. It is, however, much easier to use than my old Alfa hand powered meat grinder. But the Alfa uses standard #5 grinding plates and knives, which are easy to find. I have about half a dozen different plates for it, am stuck with only 2 for the KA.   The ones you mentioned look like they use a standard size plate as well, which is a benefit.  And various sausage stuffing tubes are likely available.
