To check the knotter action without hay, this is what I did. Cut a 1x2 board a couple inches narrower than bale width, Cut two kerfs for the twine to lay in, Trip the knotter, roll it thru the needles laying the twine in the cord holder. Now take the board you made hook it behind the twine and take a bungee cord and pull it toward the end of the chute and secure the bungees. Now take a 2x4 of coorect width and pull twine to the bottom of chute below knooters just as if it were a bale just completed. .secure the 2x then trip the knotter. Of course it is better to have someone else turn the flywhell so you can watch the whole knotter operation. After the knotter is done you should be able to pull your little loops of twine from the bill hooks. This was the only way I could run mine thru a cycle with out the twine getting all tangled up. I wish you well. gobble

I think making a simulating bale "fake" from canvus stuffed with hay would to the trick. I have canvus and can sew. I will make the test baler and post a picture of it. Thanks fot the idea.
