Dear Tomas,

Here is link for Andrew's very usefull introductional video of re-tying straw-bales http://www.google.com/#q=Re-Tying+Straw+Bales+Part+1&hl=sr&rlz=1W1ADRA_en&prmd=ivns&source=univ&tbm=vid&tbo=u&sa=X&ei=0eeHTa3ZItHUsgaGjdm-DA&sqi=2&ved=0CCQQqwQ&fp=5266ff3b5138822b.

It is easy to learn and achieve certain speed so your 800 bales will not be such a problem.

My comment: This technique can easily bring a lot of painfull blisters on your hands, so look both videos (part 1 and part 2) several times and listen to Andrews advices.

Best regards,
Bane M. Prvanovic

  My name is Tomas. I have been following this mailing list for at least 2 years. It has very usefull info.

  Could anybody share pictures or drawings of hand operated straw baler. I would like to make one for compacting loose bales. I had the tractor compacting bales last year, but since  the tactor attached balers in the area are very old, it did not compress bales very well. The strings are loose, so I'm thinking about recompacting those bales (about 800 pcs.). I know its tremendous work, but it has to be done if I want to have warm house :)  I have found some pictures online and  understand how to make the box and the handle, but do not understand how/where to attache strings so they wouldn't be in the way when loading loose bales. Can  one person operate one hand baler, or it has to be another tieyng the strings?

  Thank you!
