I've been wracking my brain trying to remember who was good with knotters around here. There were two guys who knew them inside and out,but they're dead now. I did remember one who's still alive. I don't know how much he remembers anymore,but a neighbor used to do a fair amount of custom baling and had an old IH 46 tuned to perfection. Bill Jeffery. He lives right here on Holland Road about a half mile south of County Farm. Somebody had said a while back that he was having trouble with his eyes,but he's still driving and isn't wearing glasses. He'd be the only one I'd know who might have any shot at knowing.

Did you ever check the shims on the shaft to make sure it wasn't to one side farther that it should be?

Talked with Shorty up at Tillman Hardware, Beal city. He said the problem is most like the twine finger, said it should be 90 degrees to bale chamber when at end of travel. Moved it forward toward the needle and adjusted it to meet that. Baled a few broken bales out of the barn, forking like mad.... Bales were OK for the first few, then knots started hanging on bill hook. Think I had the bale tensioners too tight. Cut some more hay today. Hopefully bale Friday, and think I"m going to invite Shorty, the mechanic.

Shoot,I got thinking. Those IH's had their own knotter didn't they? I think they were entirely different than anything else. Bill might not know those. Don't know.
