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.
