IH Corn Sheller

Postby Bob Grieb » Mon Dec 28, 2009 8:11 pm

This may be off topic and if it is I will move it. This weekend I bought an IH Corn Sheller at a swap meet in Arizona. I am wondering where I can go to get some information about it.

Thanks Bob

There are several different models that IH made, bench mount one at at time, floor standing one cob at a time and floor standing 2 at a time. I've seen some old ones that were made of wood, would take two cobs at a time and meant to be driven off a belt pulley. I have one that looks like this:

I have been unable to get any information about PN's or years made.

Bob,
I see yours is missing the fanbelt. I have been told that the "O" ring gasket from a 5 gallon bucket is a good replacement. Remember, put it on in a figure "8" so the fan runs the right way.
Best,
Mike

Hi Raymond

Thanks for posting the picture. I am on vacation in a small town called Hope. It is about 100 miles from Prescott Valley. Now I will have to find the swap meet you are talking about. I bought the sheller in Lake Havasu. I hope this post generates some information about the the sheller.

There is a belt on the fan but it is hard to see. Thanks for the idea for a replacemet. The belt on it now is from a vacuum sweeper.

Thanks to you guys for the input

Yep! Have one just like it! Works well to hull walnuts except the hull w/jam up in the bottom (don't ask me how I know! lol) Can also tighten the feed down and shell popcorn w/it. All you need is a motor or a youngster on the handle! DustyB
