Default IHC Feed Grinder

I just picked up a McCormick Deering Feed Grinder from a fellow in Hillsboro, Oregon. I met him at the small engine swap meet at Brooks about a month ago, and finally had time to drive over and get it. It is what appears to be a Model B, based on the stencilled information. It is in very nice orginal condition, and appears to have all but one or two small parts. It has the remains of the original red, white, and blue paint on it, which will make repainting it easy.

I will try to get some photos up here when I can borrow a camera. I will call Binder Books on Monday to get the O&M manuals. If anyone has one of these that is good for parts, let me know, as I may need one or two small pieces, if nothing else to look at for comparison.

Now I have something to run with my LB or M!

I called Carl at Binder Books, and they do not have anything for this either used or reprinted. So, I called Marcia at Small Farmers' Journal, and she has an old parts list for the McCormick Model B 8-inch feed grinder that she will copy and send to me for $10.00. Not a bad deal, except that I still do not have an operation manual. Judging by my experience with all other things made by IHC and McCormick, this should have a book describing operation, care, and repair, and will have at least a few illustrations. The parts list is exactly that, a list, with no illustrations whatsoever.

Does anyone have one they would either sell or loan so I can copy it?

I found the book on eBay, and bought it, but then found out from Jack Campbell at Binder Books that they do indeed have it brand new.

I have John's site marked, and once I ever get my house situation figured out, I will spend some time on this unit.

Hey Colin;

I'm going to try and get the local decal place here in town to make me up some new stencils to finish off my hopper. I imagine I may incur some design time in trying to get them to duplicate the curves and weird font found on the sides of the originals. However, if I do get them made to my satisfaction, i'll have them print up an extra set or two in case I ever get another one or somebody else needs some. I'll keep folks posted on this.

Jeb

Nah, I think i'm good. Between the ones I snapped at Mt. Pleasant this past fall and some I got from an eBay auction picture, I think i'm good. I just need to get the hopper measurements off of my machine and go down and talk with the people. Thanks! PS, did you ever seen mine once I got it finished with the hopper on it? I have a picture of it both before and after on my photo gallery.
