The brochure does not show it but here is a picture i pulled of the net of one, if memory serves me right it is a FT with a Toro engine, not a briggs as pictured here.

Note : the culti frame is from the horse-drawn unit missing the handles, two depth wheels and a different hitch.

Thanks for starting this thread.

I'm sure by now everyone has seen one of these. But I have always wondered if it went to the seeder. From that picture I suspect it goes to the seeder. That is the first time I have ever seen the wrench pictured.

It must not be too hard to find.

We found one.

Took a few years but you got one :dancingbanana:  :rolling:  I have the 3rd one in working condition I know of in Western Ma. Took the better part of my life to find, rather interesting tool and fine craftsmenship. The quality and hand painted pin striping is amazing.

 

The elusive No. 25 with attachments is still out here someweres, missed a sweet one last winter.

Well, while the tread is open again and Candy has boiled the PJ stew I might as well update. Candy, your No. 2 looks to be in great shape for a tool from the 1900's. :thumbs: I hope to see it restored someday.

 

Unknown seeder drill I have had for a number of years now. Never seen another, I believe the maker's name and model was on the tin hopper lid which was missing so I fab'ed up the current one. The whole seeder is casted in aluminum with no paint and rusted galv handle bars so I painted everything my fav colors.

My PJ no. 4.

I should bring down the PJ no. 2 for pictures.

Your quite the decorator Jesse. Nice collection you have there.

Please do get down your No. 2 sometime.  I would love to see it.

Did you know they call that fancy wheel on the drill No. 2 a daisy wheel?

Thanks for the kind words, functional art, aesthetically pleasing to the eye, had more but sold off a bunch this past fall, lol, lot's of little holes in the wall to patch. That's cool !  makes sense, thanks for that. Ok let me see about pulling down my daisy wheel for photos.

HI Jesse,

Yours is perfect!!! We need a row marker on ours.

Our handles on the No. 2 drill are missing the "Planet" emblem.

Does your No. 2 drill have the Planet emblem?

Thanks for showing yours.  There are not too many of those around I suspect.

Isn't it neat we have the same taste in equipment.

Candy

Candy, many thanks. If I recall correctly, Planet Jr wheel hoes and seeders is how we met in the first place on Smokstak. The handles on my No. 2 show very faintly the emblems, hard to photograph it but it seems to closely resemble the emblems on the later No. 4 which is pictured below from mines.

The handle bars bundle No. below.

The flower painted on the side of the hopper clearly shows it was done by hand, amazing quality considering the seeder is almost 100 years old now.

I am compelled to agree with the scarcity of the No. 2. During my travels around the Midwest to the east coast I have come across several no 2 as yard art with a range of damages, missing parts and different levels of decay. So far yours is the first I have seen mostly complete and in working condition since I have found mines.
