Jeb,

Thanks for your reply. I've attached a couple more pictures of the one I have.. I've read a lot of the older post but I was hoping some new information may have been found.

Thanks Again,
Eugene

There is a cast bracket that supports the blower fan. Later units didn't use that piece and substituted a flat steel strap. Can you get a casting number off of that bracket? We can at least use that to narrow down the range a bit.

I just wiped it with water to get a picture. It’s still dusty. It came out of an old barn. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to try to restore it and paint it or just clean it up and leave it original.

Thanks
Eugene

Jeb,

It’s 2017 on each bracket of the blower fan.

Thanks
Eugene

Used on IHC shellers from 1912-1923. I mis-spoke in the other thread. The literature indicates IHC made steel shellers from 1912-1949.

It is the SH-1 Master Parts Catalog for Corn Shellers. It covers the one-hole (steel only, no wooden units) and the two-hole spring shellers, and various cylinder shellers. Decal information is not included, only physical parts. I also have various owner's manuals from different years that sometimes give some tracking data, but do not include the years that a particular part number was used.

FYI, IHC also made an FG-1 master parts catalog for feed grinders which gives similar information. I have that book as well. Both were gotten for about $25 each a few years back through eBay.

Jeb,

One thing I noticed on the bracket supporting the turn handle on the one I have is that the middle support is straight where it goes up to the top to connect.Most pictures that I see, it has a curve to it. Mine has had some welding repairs to it in the bottom corner, but it is originally straight. Have you seen this before?

Thanks,
Eugene

I hadn't noticed that before. Up through 1923, IHC used 3 different part numbers for that piece: #2012, #2012A, and #2139. After 1923, they used #2326, which is what I believe I have. I think I can make out 2139 on yours. If so, the MPC indicates that part was used from 1915-1923. Good catch!

Wow, I don't check stak often so I missed this. These super early 1 hole all steel units are hard to find. Only thing I would do to that is oil it. I've only ever seen one other. Great find.

We just moved two corn shellers - an IHC and a New Idea - from an oveflow storage area in to the museum - I'll be taking some good pictures and posting here with questions very soon.
the first thing I will check is to see if the IHC had a pony on it.
