Protected from the elements, Gundlach grain drill remains in fine original condition.
A set of gears on each end of the grain box drove the seed metering mechanism on this Gundlach grain drill. Light use and good storage have preserved the piece in fine original condition.

This view shows how the angle of the shoes was set with wood pins. The pins would shear if the drill ran into a root or large rock. Norm’s dad mounted a small wood box on the front of the drill box to hold extra pins, which he made from white oak and hickory.
Against a background of still clear original paint are the gradations on a regulation mechanism for different types of grain. A key to the gradations is found on the directions stapled to the underside of the grain box.
The double tree, single trees and neck yoke are original to the drill.
