"Planet Junior No.3" seed drill - stock code 2868

A "Planet" seed drill in restored condition. It's an ingenious machine, the large wheel operating a shutter beneath which lets out a seed, the size of which is set on the scale to one side (so you can do anything from peas to turnips). The remainder of the mechanical gubbins is involved with making the trench and filling it in again once the seed is dropped.

The thing was obviously designed to be pulled along, although given its size by what I don't know. A three inch scale Burrell would probably be ideal...

Length 34 inches
