We suggest that you don’t need to interchange spacing gears, as for intensive farming practices transplanting of seedlings for more distantly space vegies is normal.
In this case we suggest you copy our gear position, Number 13 or 14 gear at the front and number 9 at the rear. This will give you a 4-6cm spacing with 12 hole seed wheels; or a 2-3cm spacing with 24 hole seed wheels.
The gears simply lift off the shafts, not bolted and the bicycle style chain simply lifts off and back on. This is the same positioning mentioned for use by Curtis Stone, ‘Urban Farmer’.
Many of J.M. Fortier’s recommended spacings for’ The Market Gardeners Mastrclass’ are suggested in the Selected Seeds listings with the individual seed varieties
