RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

Joe,

You have a very good memory below are photographs of both types which are the same as yours. The one with M-H raised in the casting has the decal on, the other has no markings but the tag is riveted on.
I have seen some in Canada with different blade holders etc.

Did you know there is a third variation?  one which looks very simililar to the often seen Mc Cormick knife grinder.
I have not found one of these yet, attached is a copy of the two sided brochure for "The Jewel" knife grinder sold by M-H in England.

Malcolm.

RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

Hi Malcolm, I noticed your pictures of your No.6 Maize Sheller.  I have just picked up a No.5 in rusty condition.  It appears to have been originally black with the standard stencilling on the side.  Do you or anyone know if that would have been original.  Also I am intrigued by the logo decal on the front.  I also picked up a 55D on the same place.  I'll see if I can attach a photo.

RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

Nice find Buck, you don't come across M-H sheller's too often, they were available in single and double hole, early ones were wood and later ones steel.
Looks like your No 5 is a single and my No 6 is a double.

Over the years I have seen a few in Canadian M-H collections, most of them in original condition with remains of green paint and yellow lettering, can't say I have noticed any black, but you never know as your stencilling looks to be very original.
Will it clean up and look good with the "oily rag" treatment? then your preserving what is still visible on there.

Malcolm.

RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

A couple of recent finds.  I believe the red one is called a root pulper ( as listed in a Massey Catalogue), but no doubt called all different things around the globe. The other is of a nearly finished restoration of a HV McKay chaff cutter. Dad has recently retired and likes his timber work.  I think we nearly have it.  There were some signs of original blue paint under the grease.  Some of the original writing is in the original timber chute, which I will add later.

RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

Yes we call them "root pulper's" here in Eastern Lincolnshire, you don't have to travel far before the terminology changes to "root choppers" or just "choppers". We see plenty of them made by British Companies who made engines and barn equipment like, Bamford, Bentall and other smaller manufacturers, but the M-H range like the one you found are very scarce over here.

Nice to see your HV McKay chaff cutter, certainly one I have not seen over here and well done on the restoration work, when finished it will look well belted up to a Sunshine engine or M-H Sunshine tractor, keep the photo's rolling.

Malcolm.

RE:M-H Barn Equipment.

So I was shopping at my little local hole in the wall corner market and came across this item for sale.  It isn't really equipment, but if you know the Millers you have seen their equipment make this very product.  I had no idea it was actually marketable.  But maybe it really isn't that marketable because it is not flying off of the shelf even after the discounted price.  Before anyone asks, I didn't purchase it.  Once you have had the homemade version from Millers, I don't see a reason to shop anywhere else.
