Woohoo! It's time for our collaboration with the What is it? Blog - can you guess what this strange tool above is for?
Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment please. You can, however, guess as many times as you'd like. Post no URL or links - doing so will forfeit your winnings.
For more clues, be sure to visit the What is it? Blog. Good luck!Update 10/23/09 - the answer: A corn sheller, it was used to remove the undesirable shaped kernels of corn from the ends of ears leaving the large flat kernels thought to be the best for planting.
Congratulations to Tom P. who guessed right, and Dave H. who came up with "Bris-O-Matic"
