Maize Sheller HC166

A green metal maize sheller used for removing kernels from a corn cob. The cob is inserted into the cylinder and a disk with protrusions is rotated using the handle. The protrusions knock the kernels off the corn. The sheller would usually be fixed onto a bench with a bucket below to catch the kernels.
