If it is actually metal, a close inspection of the knife, plate, auger and housing should give clues on where it is coming from. Look at the friction points where surfaces make contact for signs of metal loss and wear. Don’t forget to check that back end of the auger where it enters the motor drive. There should be a plastic or brass bushing or washer there.
As mdseaside mentioned, you should be oiling the plate and knife with food grade oil. This is so when you start the grind they have some lubrication till the meat makes it through the auger and can act as a lubricant for the knife and auger.
I’m looking for the conversion table they have on the site.

Use the search function and search for conversion chart
Ok, cool I found it. I was using the wrong search.
Didn’t realize there are 2. Found exactly what I needed. My math was correct, it just didn’t seem like it. Thanks a bunch.
