Default IHC wooden corn shredder--help needed

We currently have my grandfathers IHC 4 roller corn shredder in the shop. This is a rather old machine with the frame made out of wood. It was originally a Deering machine. We are missing the shaker/auger that caught the loose corn and ran it to a short elevator. Anybody got one of these machines and could send me a description or some photos?

Thanks,
John

Are you referring to a 4 hole corn SHELLER or a 4 hole husker-shredder? Two different machines. I have a manual that covers shellers but husker-shredders you don't see all that often because nobody shocks corn anymore. A more common husker-shredder is the Frick-Rosenthal shredder. You can find some pictures and possibly a little information on them for comparison. Also, check eBay for manuals for your machine. You'd be surprised what shows up from time to time!

Replying to a few differnt replies here. Definetly talking about a shredder, not a sheller. Ours ran the loose corn over to a probable bucket elevator. We are missing what gets the corn to the elevator--still have the pieces attached that held it to the machine. I think, given the mounting hardware, that it was a shaker we are missing. I forgot to mention this machine was practically identical to a 2 roller machine. I got a good scan from WHS but can't make out what is mounted underneath.

If pictures are what you need, call Binder Books at 503-684-2024 and tell them what machine you have, and they will have it. They reprint all of the old IHC and McCormick parts books and O&M manuals. Plus, they have mountains of originals too.

The only things I have had problems getting are some of the real old horse-drawn equipment. If BB does not have them, let me know, and I will give you a phone number to a place that will run xerox copies of the horsey stuff if they have it.

Colin, didn't even think about Binder books. I figured they might not go this far back. Anyway, I got manuals from WHS last week---it is simply amazing how much they have for the old IHC stuff. Between the various pictures of the machine and the parts books we have figured out what we have to make to get the loose corn to the elevator. The only thing I can figure is it is so low to the ground that it go damaged beyond repair so my grandfather took it off. For some reason he also removed the ear corn elevator but we have found/made and reinstalled that.
