It is a McCormick Deering grain drill of late 30's, 40's, or early 50's vintage. The number of the drill was determined by the number of drills and spacing. Example McCormick Deering 14 x 7, 20 x 6, 16 x 6 etc. It was available with single disk openers, double disk openers, or shoe furrow openers and numerous attachments. It was available as 12x6, 14x6, 16x6, 18x6, 20x6, 22x6, 24x6, 28,6, 9x7, 10x7, 11x7, 12x7, 13x7, 14x7, 16x7, 18x7, 24x7, 8x8, 9x8, 10x8, 12x8, 16x8, and 20x8 sizes.

GOOD GRIEF it's an International Harvester. I have one like it in the barn. Note the IHC on the side


GOOD GRIEF, 13MF is the IHC model number. I even have the owners manual for it. 13 = number of openers, M = grain drill F = Fertilizer.

I have two in the shed (13MF and 11MF) and yes it does have IHC on the sides like you noted.

Yours would be a 11 x 7 grain drill with fertilizer atachment and a 13 x 7 grain drill with fertilizer atachment by my 1941 catalog.

I think I'm going to do a pretty much complete disassembly and reassembly. Alot of the parts are small enough to fit in a blasting cabinet, so thats a plus. Whats the best way to paint the small parts? Ive heard you can get trade colors in spray cans now, would that work? would the can painted parts match if I use a spray gun on larger parts (like frame and box)?
