Can you send me your phone number. I will call you today. I worked on it yesterday and have the twine strung through the needle. I am not sure where to start on the knotter. There is two or three places where you can place the string but I am not sure which one to use. I also am not sure if the bill hook will pick up the string like a hay baler does. Thanks Sam

Here are a couple pictures that may or may not help. The one shows where part of the twine runs and the other will give the proper name of the parts. If you guys are talking on the phone it may help to have the picture to look at.

Sam, Our club, Ozarks Older Iron Club, in Cabool MO have a McCormic corn binder we used a week ago to bind our corn and have a manual on it which shows how to thread the knotter. Email me and I'll send you a picture.

Thanks David for the offer. I used mine to cut sorghum with and it worked fairly well. I need to adjust it to make the smaller bundles. Kevin in S.C. sent me info. on how to do it with pictures. Hopefully next year it will work a little better. Do you have binder twine? I found some at TSC but they want 20 dollars a ball. The last I bought was 27 Dollars for 4 balls. But that was over ten years ago. Thanks again Sam

I use 16000 baler twine in my binder and it works fine for me. I have to have the twine in a 5 gallon pail. Alan

I was having trouble finding twine also until I saw that was what the cub scouts were using to tie knots for their badges, I asked where they got it and I was directed to the local COOP-Duh me. I think they charged me $5.99 a ball and it was made in South America. It worked ok but its not Plymouth by any means. If you can't find any shoot me an email at carriagebuilder@hotmail.com and I will look up their number, they probably know of another COOP that sells it in your area if they look on their computer.
