Just guessing here, but the corn isn't fresh picked? You'd probably end up with corn chowder if those were nice juicy nibblets.
In any case that's ingenious...how do people come up with this stuff???

I used to do that job by hand when I was a kid and would go visit my aunts on the farm. They dried the corn in a corn crib. It might have been a feed type corn like cow corn. I don't remember if I ever asked. I would shuck the ear and then grab it in both hands and twist it back and forth a few times. It didn't take a lot of force and was about as fast as that drill method but then I never did a pot full like that. They fed the kernels to their hogs.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Kind of corny, but the other one you can use the cobbs for pipes.

I have shelled corn by hand before and it ain't fun. I have bought it at the Farmers Co-op in 100 # bags. Now I can't lift a 100#.

Times have changed. And not for the better.
As a kid, we shelled corn (dried on the cob) by hand, because we didn't have a huge amount of corn. When we went to my uncle's farm he had a hand crank sheller, similar to this one. Put the shucked corn in the trough, push it down into the sheller, and shell corn as fast as you can feed it. And they are still available.
