Just a short video of the test run I did today on the old IH hammer mill. I rescued this one from where it was rusting away in a neighbour's yard a few years back. A little sheet metal replacement, turned the hammers and some welding on the hopper and it is looking ready to run.

True, but if I had a dollar for every time I'd done that I could probably buy a new belt, mill, and tractor.
Yes, next step will be to put some actual oats through it to see how it performs under load. I think the old fibre drive pulley on this IH mill will have better traction than the steel one on the previous Case mill had. Hopefully the fibre has not deteriorated too badly over the 70 odd years that it has sat outside. :unsure:

smooth running rig - a shovel or two of ear corn would make a racket though

is the cyclone (dust collector) inside the building?

Yes, cyclone dust collector is up inside the bin protected from the weather. About the noisiest thing I ever heard go through the old Case hammer mill was a 9/16 combination wrench. By the time it was small enough to go through the screen it was in little blobs of metal hot enough to start the chopped grain smoking in the bin. Grain doesn't seem to make much sound at all. Straw bales made a little more noise, especially when they were partially frozen. Worked good as long as it was real frosty. Otherwise the straw got a little tough and would lodge behind the screen and eventually plug the machine. With the cost of gas I don't grind straw anymore, let the cows do it.

My Dad bought an IHC hammermill like that around 1950. I think it was a No.6. We pulled it with a Farmall H.

I can''t see a number on this old IH mill as the paint is pretty much worn off . It is a smaller mill than the Case I have been using. The Case was a 14 inch wide and this IH looks to be no more than 10. Power was never a problem with the Cockshutt 40 as belt slippage would limit just how fast the grain could be fed. The IH insignia on the pulley looks to be really old, like something from the thirties or fourties. I have a picture of it somewhere. .
