SOURCE: The only information written on

The mobilco sounds like a gar lubricant. I bale myself and work on my own machinery. The first thing you need is the make, model and serial numbers. There shuold be a tag somewhere fastened to the machine. Both of mine have the tag riveted to the flywheel side of the frame.Mine are old john deere balers. Balers can be very complicated machines and you need the manual to dial them in right unless you know that machine like the back of your hand. Sometimes you can have tying problems from bad twine that might have been damp or knotters rusty and not moving right. Some times penetrating oil on the moving parts of a knotter will do wonders. I am assuming that you are talking about an old square baler since I dont know what you have for sure. I started having problems with mine when the twine started wearing a pretty deep groove in one of the parts it dragged across (dont remember which part it was) but anyway, I replaced and reshimmed accordingly, and it ties really good now. Hope I could be of some help.

SOURCE: Where can I learn to tie rope knots like some sailor knots?

You can do a little searching online to find tutorials for tying sailing knots. If there is a specific knot that you are looking for I would suggest going to Wikipedia to see the list of knots and then look YouTube or a site like eHow for step by step instructions for how to tie them.

Windsor knot tie instruction

Cross over, around the right side, in back and around the left side, over the front and around the right side, this time putting the fat part behind the frontmost layer you just laid.

Or, perhaps better, see
I think that the Windsor is the best-looking of the common tie knots.

How to tie a full windsor knot. I like them crisp and diamond shaped.

You want the back length to be less than the front length. How to get them right depends on both the length of the tie, and the size of our neck -- there's no one-size-fits-all instruction to start with so much on each side.

See or a host of other sites that will tell you how to tie any tie knot.

How can I attach a ball to a rope to make a tetherball game?

You can buy a tetherball ready made - however if money is tight you could always make your own by attaching a rope to a volleyball, you can make a hole in the sponge ball and pass the rope through it and tie a huge knot at the bottom.

I need to know how to attach starter rope on a chainsaw

The end-of cord knots are simple overhand knots, but you need to melt the cord ends back a little so that the knots won't pull out (do the outer end after threading the cord through the handle). You have to wind up the spring so that it has good 'pullback', but not so far that the spring binds-up when trying to start the engine. Wedge the spool so that it doesn't unwind, then run the cord into the spool, heat the cord end, and tie the knot. Fish the cord around the spool in a CCW direction until the spool is nearly filled. Thread the cord out through the port on the outside, then slide on the handle, heat the cord end, and tie another knot. Hope this helps!

I have a broken pull cord and cannot figure out how to fix it.

Easiest way is to remove the complete blower housing assembly, remove the old rope, then twist the rope pulley around and around until the spring is tight, ease it back until the hole in the pulley for the rope lines up with the hole in the recoil housing and stick a small screwdriver through the pulley and the housing to hold tension on the spring. Next, take your new rope and feed it first through the recoil housing, then through the hole in the pulley, tie a good solid knot right at the end of the rope and pull it back out until you feel it pulling on the pulley. Now holding tension on the rope, remove the screwdriver and let the spring tension slowly pull the rope back into the the pulley until it is full, pull it back out about a half turn on the pulley and tie a slip knot against the outside of the housing to hold it in place and reassemble everything. Hook the end of your rope through the rope guide on your handle if it has one, slip the handle on and tie a knot to hold it. Cut off the excess, pop out the slip knot and it will pull up tight and you are ready to go
