You needed strong hands to use this on the farm, to get ready for planting.

So I finally made my move to go to my ultimate authority on vintage farming and hand tools my great great great uncle, Zebulon Mountain Lafe Pike,  and let me tell you it's a son of a bitch of a drive getting up to his cabin on dead wolf creek up on ghost mountain in Vermont.  I had to use the barter system and trade him two bottles of wild Turkey an almost new plug of redman tobacky and a couple girlie magazines that somehow found their way into the cab of my vehicle. Uncle Zeb said its an Eagle corn sheller, patented in 1870,  then he asked me if I was a revenuer and threw me off his property!

Yes it is a corn sheller. The operator sat on the paddle and turned a cob of corn while pressing the handles together. The "spurs" dug under the kernels and they fell into a basket below. Nice going Nasty.

 Back where I'm from they would call something like that fancy city farmer  equipment!  :innocentwhistle:  it's all in the details Jimbo. If you look real close it's written right on the side of it! 🕵. 

That fancy Eagle head makes me think of the time we were all sitting out at the farm n pops was raging on about Michael Jackson, he said that little skinny black fellow that can dance like a son of a bitch that wears one glove on his hand. He said if I had him working on the farm for a week hed have a glove on both hands !😂😂😂😂

P.s.  I blew up the picture and then messed with various imaging and shading tools till I could read what was on it.
