Back to Fundamentals

We have three strapping machines at work. We need two that are operating to work efficiently. For the past week, we've had one (our least favorite) that was running. That ended last night. Now we have none.

Back to fundamentals. It's called a bale of twine.

As I said to Alicia, "Can you tie a square knot?"

Actually, I think this was an accidental selfie while she was taking the above pictures. She'll probably shoot me for using it.

She wasn't appalled at all. I showed her how to tie a square knot that won't slip, and in two seconds she understood. Alicia's no slouch.

But can you tie a whatnot? Probably wouldn't hold the bundles together very well. So forget it.
