Stumpy,like jon & lazy said get it welded. Take it to some one who knows what there doing you may what to take the other needle with yeah, so the repaired one will come out right.
"Back-in-the-day" Dad took one to the oldest machine shop I ever seen! It so happened his forge was up and running. Told dad to go back and bring the good needle. Whata creepy place! dad left me there. The man said very little, was dirtest &biggest look'en man I ever seen ( I was 8 or so) he said "did you break this?" I shuck my head no "boy don't you talk? I said yes. He said do you know what I am? said no, "I'am blacksmith" well that made sense looken at him and his shop. Well dad got back. Blacksmith said "you pull this handle real slow" as the forge got hotter he went to work. I don't remember how long it took. But when dad I left with a repaired needle. Blacksmith said that needle won't break again in that spot!! Years past and the old blacksmith passed away. Local farmers made sure that he was proply layed to rest. That needle knotted thousands of bales well after his passing. So Stumpy (if your still reading this) hee hee. I get it repaired...My 11 cents worth.
