I just bought an old stationary International hay baler to use with my 1935 JD A. I need to find a source for baling wire and also need to buy a belt to drive it.
Any advice/help/suggestions on where i can buy these would be greatly appreciated!

Recently restored a model 15 IH haypress powered by my 1935 F12 and was having same problem. I found a few places to buy wire with a loop end but if I remember 10 foot wire was over $50.00 plus shipping for 125 pieces, the smallest amount they listed. I just use the unit for shows etc so and don"t need galvinized or special wire so I made my own. Local hardware stores, Lowe"s, Home Depot, etc, carry rolls of 16g tie wire. Cut it to length, loop-tie one end and you are all set. I think I made aprox 18 10" 6" wires out of one roll. I found my drive belt on Ebay. It was a double 21 foot by 5" wide and at a good price. There is usually two or three listed every day so it may take a while to find the size you need. Good Luck.

You just need to by some baling wire and twist the loop in one end your self. They have a hand operated machine that does this and you can make one pretty cheap too. It is a frame kind of like a small wood lathe. You have a handle to do the twist on one end and the bed to make the wire the length you want.

Have seen boxes of wire at TSC, so they have, or can get. Like the guys said, build yourself a jig and make your own. Not going to make thousands of bales with this thing are you? Be prepared for sticker shock on the price.
