More about this item

macleay These are actually a corn sheller, (removes the corn kernels from the cob), but I noticed a lot of sellers call them a husker or shucker, (A husker or shucker is one that removes the husk, usually by hand, but there was a tool made that you held in your hand to slit the husk with). Okay, trivia over. Looks to be in good condition. Other than turning the crank, it is un-tested by me. These were manufactured between 1904 and 1919. In 1904 The Root Brothers Co. became the Root-Heath Mfg. Co. In 1919, another company was added, resulting in the Fate-Root-Heath Co. There was another sheller made around this time with the Heath name, (also from Plymouth), and was called the Ideal. br One sold here on eBay for 310 plus shipping,(without handle), (item # 160656611224.
