When ever I repair a sq baler that has needle adjustment problems I use the 2 bots and slots in needle frame to change needle to knotter relationship. I've never read in baler manual where it stated bend needles to align with knotters. This post was edited by Tx Jim at 03:40:28 11/12/13.

The slots provided where the needles bolted could only accomplish certain adjustments.
My Dad was an old binder man so he recognized that the needles were made with maleable iron the same as on the old binders. Bending the needles accomplished the job of "fine tuning" where the needles had to travel to get the twine to the right place on the knotters (which are also basically the same as on a binder).
