: :We also have a Chatham Mill grain cleaner. It says Manson Campbell Co. on it. Also says,
Detroit, Michigan. We would like information also. Please let us know if you found out anything. Contact us at Bingmantwins@hotmail.com. Thanks!


We have found in our barn what I believe to be an antique screener for grains. To me it looks like you put the corn ( oats etc ) in the top, turn the crank which turns a drum to blow air over the corn, the corn drops down on to a moving screen and drops out the bottom. There is a drawer at the bottom which collects the fines. The unit is approximately 4 ft wide by 6 ft long and although it is faded, it looks like it says Chatham Mill, and then on the next line it says Bell Co. Anybody with info on this item please email me at mistreeemn@aol.com Thanks in advance
: I no this is no help to you but I have one also, I have been trying to find out about it for a while now with no luck, if you get any information before I do please let me no, I will do the same if I get any information.
: Thanks
