    This belongs to a friend. It is large and bulky. Someone told her they think it is a grain separator. Any ideas.

      Looks like a fanning mill, used to clean the chaff from the grain. Can you supply some more pictures?

      If it will remove seeds from ganja fast, you could sell it & retire.

      Wooden, hand-operated fanning mill, a device used by farmers to clean grain, with original paint and pinstriping, made in LaPorte by the E.F. Michael Fanning Mill Company in 1883

      There would have been a hand crank on the metal shaft, to run the fan.

      walksoftly, I can take more photos on July 14, when I visit her again. Thank you for the link to the nicer one with the pin stripe. Her's isn't quite as sharp as that.

      blunderbuss2, I had to google ganja, so I suppose it would do the trick, and my friend would love to sell this and retire! LOL

      I, also, would like to see pics from diff. angles. Love old machinery. maybe I can reproduce them & retire.
