Default Oil cake breaker

I've just come into possession of this Bentall's Oil cake breaker.
Its from the 1920's and in superb condition.
Only the roll gap adjusting cam is stuck , hopefully with paint.

I've taken 3 foot diameter hand cranking wheel off and the wooden drive pulley as I have to get it down a narrow staircase.
I think its been in place for many years and the buildings modified around it.

Can only find 1 other picture on internet of this model (think its in Anglian museum)
Anyone else come across them??

think I will be buying up all the out of date Weetabix and shredded wheat to show when running from engine.

There's a picture of a very similar OCP on Grace's Guide, but it appears to be in a museum and is probably the one you have seen.

We have catalogue pictures of the OCT, OCO and OCY on our website, but not the OCP.

I'll dig out the Bentall catalogue and see if there is any info on the OCP.

Yes it is the Graces guide one I saw.
Mine still has the slotted chute under a piece of 6mm plywood.
think the bit of wood ensures every last crumb would go to feed the animals to save on wastage.

collecting tomorrow so hope fully get some more detailed pics soon.

I think you are supposed to use old 1/2" chipboard in 12" x 12" squares that has been wet through, then dried out.

Hi. Here is an advert from the Bentall machinery catalogue dated 1911. The OCP model is given as 14" and you have the one with enclosed gearing although the lettering on yours is the same as picture 1. The original shute would have been a close mesh iron grid. I guess they made these up until the late 20's or early 3o's.
When I was a boy most farms had a cake crusher lying in a corner somewhere but no longer used because the Linseed oil slabs of cake had been replaced by ready made sacks of feed nuts for livestock obtainable direct from the mill.
