I noticed one of the needle eyes on my 315 is pretty well worn. Is this something I can just weld up?
Thanks
Pete

I run plastic twine and have to braze mine up every other year. Be nice if they come with a ceramic insert!

Thanks guys - as deep as the groove is, you would think it would have an effect on tying

No it will not affect tying but where the problem comes up is--your knot tying the twine balls together won't go through and you will get broken bales when baler changes balls.
