Antique Corn Sheller

After corn was harvested, it could be dried and ground into meal or used as feed for the animals. The ear of corn was inserted into the opening, the lever was turn which activated some tongs that scraped the corn off the cob. This is another tool out of western North Carolina. It’s in really good shape and still has the clamps and screws that attached it to a table. It is marked R & H Mfg and sells for around $100 on eBay.
