Ruddy and charming from years of use, this antique cast iron corn sheller is a humble, yet important piece of agricultural history.
- Approx. 11" x 9" excluding crank handle.
- Still works.
- Rusty, but isn't that what makes it so delightful?
Corn is pulled through two toothed wheels, each spinning in opposite directions. Once the corn kernals are stripped from the cob, they fall through a screen and into a bucket placed beneath the machine. Hand-cranked corn shellers like this Black Hawk brand machine have been around since the early 1800s and rightly so - because they continue to simply get the job done without fail, proving that they really don't make things like they used to.
