    Wow, AR! Nice call. I never knew there were corn shuckers. Of course, I don't live in Iowa...

    Aw Shucks...AR got it right. probably. Kevin, what were you doing up in yankee territory? You could be shot as a spy or worse yet, tortured into giving away advanced southern technology.

    A shucker takes the outside leaf off the ear? A "sheller" I'm guessing takes the kernals off the cobb. From AL orig., but not the farm. Remember the old water mill with the grind stones & the whole building shaking around you & collecting the flour or corn meal in bags. Pre-Blackberry! Days when we kids exercised something more than their fingers. Make a fool of yourself if you try to explain!
    Never worked the rows though.

    Your on the money blunderbuss2, the old hand shellers used to cast iron plates with dimples on the face, as you would crank the handle , the plates would rotate and the kernals would go out the bottom while the cob out the side.
    Then you would seperate the cobs, red and white, they then made their way to the outhouse, use the red first and then check with the white one, if the white one wasn't clean, try another red

    Love it kerry! Give me a moment to stop laughing. I vaguely remember watching cobbs go down shuts being thrown back & forth & the cobbs being thrown out the side. Bringing back long lost memories! The leather belts in the mill being changed to diff. size drive wheels for diff. things, including a wood lathe, drill etc.. Those days are gone but am beginning to remember that I lived them. Can't possible replace that! Memory lane that these kids can't possibly live. Maybe I did live thru a golden age!
