Speed is not your problem.

Are you using baling wire (special stuff just for wire balers)? Are you oiling the wire? Are the twister hooks smooth/polished. Are the twister hooks worn out with deep grooves. Wire has to pass thru smoothly.

Ive got/had oil on the wire for years. Im using made for bailing hay bailing wire, Twister hooks are smooth. What is a deep groove? There are none but possibly at the inside point where the hook becomes the part around the shaft.

In the bottom of the twister hook, wire wears into it and causes a narrower groove. The wire then hangs up in the groove. Normal groove does not grab or hang up the wire, but lets the wire slide as the bale pulls the wire away from the hook and shaft.

How do I tell how much of a groove is normal and how much is too much?

Perhaps your operators manual shows how to check. JD used a drill bit shank, but don't know what size of bit, to check the hooks. It was either a numbered drill or lettered drill and I don't remember which. It was NOT a usual fraction drill.
