If the following link does not come up with the John Deere hand operated corn sheller.
Select equipment search then type in "sheller". The hand operated sheller should be the first machine.

You could copy the "Polish speed reducer" that I use, for the corn grinder. Its a cub final drive. Feed the pto power, into the upper axle, and attach a pulley, to the wheel hub. Perfect speed, for my corn grinder. Ed

Barnyard I wish I had so much time on my hands, as I am and plan to get old , I think I will keep on hand cranking mine. But that said at the Rough & Tumble in Kinzers they have the whole operation mounted on one trailer, sheller,grinder or hammermill and the separator running on one engine,hit miss or power unit. I would like to do a setup with my power unit and the 4-E , I also picked up a meadows mill stone mill, as I said I wish I had just a little more time on my hand........now!!!

Will mine work better if I dress like the guy in the pic or would I be okay wearing just my clown suit?

Bill, better go for the clown suit. That way we will recognize you! :shock: :lol:

Here a couple of pics of my McCormick Deering sheller for a comparison of their similarities. I've seen them both ways, but this one has a slip clutch on the hand crank.

I saw this old post and was wondering how you came out with the corn sheller. I bought one a while back with all wood body and legs. I have taken it apart, cleaned and oil it up. At first I used some Black Oil in a spray can on the bearings. Everything turned great until the weather cooled off and I could barely turn the darn thing. I put some Kroil in the oil holes and after a few minutes it worked easy again. Now I want to find a round belt to drive the chafe fan/paddle in the bottom. Do you or anyone else know where these can be bought in custom lengths. I guess the hollow core ones with a connector would be the easiest to use. But could probably use a solid core that would need to be welded together.

I turned the crank at the optimal speed to get the rpm of the drive gear and how many turns the flywheel turned while turning the crank handle. Came to about 4 to 1. The RPM will be about 160 to 200. I plan on turning a wooden 2" pulley to put behind the flywheel to match the metal pulley on the fan/chafe drive. If it doesn't last I will turn a metal one.

A cheap easy way to acquire a belt for the chaff fan: A 5 gal. plastic bucket will generally have a large o-ring seal around the lid. It makes an acceptable belt.

I thought about that and the bucket seal is way to long. Are they heat welded together? If so I have a rope cutter from back in my rock climbing days that should do the job. Thanks for your reply.

Well, after 6 !/2 years it is still a display piece. I have never used it.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Seeing that and knowing what the rpm potential caught my eye. I don't believe I would want to be standing close to mine with it hooked up to my Cub :lol: . I believe I have the rations that I need to get the chafe fan working just need to get a round belt. I will probably try to get one on eBay. All the other places I have found want to sell a big spool and I don't need but about 3' total.
