If you Google "John Deere 14T Knotter" there are several videos on YouTube.

John appleby from wisconsin invented the knotter in the late 1800s I beleive, it was first used on grain binders and his billhook design is basically the same as used today. His prototype was carved out of wood. He was a young man when he invented it and his parents farm where he lived at the time is between elkhorn and whitewater WI on hwy 12. There is a plaque on a rock stating this at the location of the farm. The first appleby knotters were manufactured in nearby beloit WI.

Interesting,,he must have had some very forward thinking going on, I have heard it said that there were a couple of different versions of knotters but the one Deere and most every one else uses is the only one i know of, ,,Deere has made very little changes in the knotter and balers for a long time..

I cam up with this but still not much.. In 1936, a man named Innes, of Davenport, Iowa, invented an automatic baler for hay.
