The Gale firm was a major manufacturer of farm implements and was most known for its “Gale Chilled Plow.” Gale plows were sold throughout the country and even to foreign locales. In the Michigan Museum in Lansing there is an authentic Gale plow on permanent display. In 1918 the firm discontinued the farm implement line and went into the foundry business.
