The object of this invention is to furnish convenient means for reducing green corn to pulp or nearly to a pulp; and it consists in the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described.
In the accompanying drawing, Figure l is a top ,view. Figs. 2 and 3 are longitudinal sections of Fig. 1 taken on the line :0 at, showing the serrated plates upon each side of the stock. Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
The stock is made of wood, in two parts, A and B, which are two inches, more or less, in width, and one inch, more or less, in thickness. These pieces are connected together by the serrated plates 0 and D, one of which is coarser than the other, so that the corn may be grated coarse or fine, as may be desired. These plates 0 and D are of about the thickness of sawplate steel, cut out on the upper edge to form semicircles, with the semicircles serrated, as seen in the drawing, the circles being three inches, more or less, in diameter.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The corn-grater herein described, formed of the stocks or pieces A B and the plates 0 D, cut out to form semicircles and having teeth of different size, as and for the purpose specifled.
