    I shucked and shelled a lot corn back in the day. Mostly to shell a cob we just grabbed it with both hands then gave it a twist back and forth a couple of times, job done.
    This is a novel idea and looks like it works good, but that is what teenager's are around for it toughens up their hands so they don't get blisters from a hoe or shovel handle.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Teenagers today get their blisters from Playstation Paddles. Not shucking corn or any practical work.

    Send em to me I can break them of that habit. I'll teach them how to use a shovel a hoe an axe or a hammer or or use them on their backsides until they learn the value of work not play. If their gen X parents object I have ways to cure their ills as well.

    Reminds me of the corn drill challenge videos: just replace the pliers with your teeth. Works great if you have extra teeth that you don't need.

    What I really like about this one is how the corncob gets submerged below the separated corn before shelling.
