Hello. I have just purchased an 8ft John Deere Light-Running Grain Binder. All the metal parts are there and complete. My question is about the wooden reel parts. What are the dimensions? Type of wood? Also were can I get canvas for this machine. Anyother thing that you can tell me about these machines will be greatly appreciated. THANKS

Never used a JD, but you can figure it out. Set the reel height at its lowest point on the adjustment lever. The length for the spokes will be just clearing the guards on the cutterbar. The metal reel should have brackets that the wooden spokes fit in. Cut wood to fit.
Spokes should be made from oak for strength and decay resistance, but any hardwood except poplar or something similar should do. Slats probably measured 3/8 by 3 or 3 1/2 inches and as I recall they were made from clear grained pine or fir with fir probably being better because of being less likely to warp. The reel should not be too heavy so as to not put so much strain on its drive train.
