Picture is of the 6x6 spool. 

Perfectly lays out five rows on a 30" bed to give each plant the ideal amount spaceMany plant spacings can be achieved with one spool using the corners, sides, and the middle of grid squares. I use the five by five for dense plantings of Spinach, Bok Choy, and Flowers. 

This is the spool only - Handle needed  for correct operation.

The Gridder..

is a rolling dibbler used to lay out or "dibble" your plantings. It is also used to make straight lines before direct seeding or using a paperpot transplanter.

Even and straight plantings are more productive and easier to cultivate.

The gridder creates perfect, evenly spaced plantings on a 30" bed. Not recommended for beds which are not 30"

A spool is related to the number or rows you intend to plant on the bed. Thus when you wish to plant two rows, you would use a 2x2 spool.

Spacing - You need only divide the bed by the number of rows. The calculation is 30”/2 rows = 15” . Thus a 2x2 spool spaces plantings 15” apart in the bed and in-row which is the correct and only even spacing for 2 rows on a 30” bed. Obviously in-row spacing and row spacing are identical for even plantings.

If that is unclear, then the "Plant Spacing" video below should help to clarify.
