description

The bag binder is primarily used, among others by the farmer and the miller, to close (large) bags with a thin (approx. 1 mm) iron wire that is provided with a loop at both ends where the hook-shaped end of the bag binder is picked up. . By pulling the (spring back) handle over the screw thread, the binding wire is twisted together.

The steel bender also uses the bag binder to bind the reinforcing bars - eg floor slabs - together into a net. A wire is tied around every intersection. [MOT]
