Everything Brendon says.
In general the same Planet Jr has been around since the late 1800s. In the 40s & 50s, JD,AC, IH and others all used the Planet Jr for vegetable planters.
To get the best seed distribution, you bench calibrate. Place seed in the seed box and turn the drive wheel to correlate with a specific distance then count the number of seeds dropped. If 60 seeds drop in a 60" distance, then average seed spacing is about 1". If 30 seeds dropped, average seed spacing is about 2".
Another factor is seed size. Seed drop can be more consistent if seeds are sorted by size through a seed sorter.

The Planet Jr seeders used to be used in my home area for planting vegetable crops and you see a lot of them at used equipment yards. From what I can tell the new ones they still make work exactly the same as the old ones and I've only ever seen one style. These seeders don't singluate seeds like a regular planter but instead dribble them out in a continuous stream. The rate is set by adjusting the hole size where the seeds flowed through and a rotating agitator keeps the seeds moving. When raised up there's a shut-off that was activated through the linkage to stop the flow. For as long as they've been in production they must do an acceptable job. However, a person does need to be aware of their limitation of not being able to meter seeds at a precise spacing.
