Very nice indeed, did the damage to the hopper in #3 come from lifting it without a spreader bar or was it already that way? Again very nice Tom

If you give me some of the part numbers from the castings, I can at least narrow it down to a date range. You have a Type "D" machine that was made in 8" and 10" sizes (diameter of the grinding plates). The spiral rollers are not necessary unless you are trying to grind corn that still has the leafy husk on it. The rollers would slice the husks so that they would not clog up the opening where the corn is fed into the grinding plates. The auger in the bottom of the hopper would bust the cobs into smaller chunks that the plates can grind.

281F: Breaker, Spiral. Used on 8" type D from 1919-1948
256F: Shield, Plate. 1918-1948
269F: Arm, Center box and cross. 1919-1948

Can you get any from the main frame casting, adjustment handle parts or any of the internal grinding plate pieces (castings the plates attach to)?

---------- Post added at 07:54:27 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:48:46 PM ----------

Interesting to note that the steel grease cups (number 0 or number 1, not the cast iron ones) are listed as being used with part 269F beginning in 1934, although there appears to have been an earlier grease cup design (with a cover?) that was used from 1919-1925 or 1933 depending on the style.

---------- Post added at 08:05:39 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:54:27 PM ----------



So the grease cups in question are the cast iron ones. If they are marked S786 on the lid, they were used from 1919-1925. If marked S3983, those were used from 1919-1933. The problem is knowing if the cups are original to the machine or installed after the fact by a previous owner needing extra/spare parts. Later machines (I assume) would have used all steel grease cups similar to the ones found on engines.

I hope all this helps in some way!

Grease cups are s786. I dont know if original but patina matches. Try 102F or 39F

102F: Lever, shifting. 1911-1948
39F: Wheel, compressor spring hand. 1911-1923

So this information combined with the earlier parts gets us to a time period from 1919-1923. That's about as narrow a window as you are likely to get. Paint committee decision #19 was given in 1925 and specifies red/green color scheme with blue rollers on the Type D. I'm not sure what color scheme was used on earlier machines, but I have a picture of an early one that was all red except for a blue hopper (image attached). Another belonging to Jim Walker on this site appears to be all red except for (maybe) white legs?

I hope this information helps you out!
