« Part 3: The Paint Job Part 4 of I like a challenge series Part 5: The video »

The old saying—-A picture is worth a thousand words certainly applies here. I bolted all of the metal components of the cornsheller in place and gave it a test run. Will do a demonstration video this weekend on the operation of the Improved Hocking Valley Cornsheller. This was a fun project.

Awesome restoration project!

I had the opportunity to meet Mike last November and all I can say is “what a wonderful guy”! I think we talked for 2-3 hours and it felt like we had known each other for years. Mike takes pride in everything he does and it shows with the items he makes. Looking forward to more conversations in the future.
