The First Tying Machine

This is a short video showing the first tying machine in use on a farm in southwestern Ontario. In 1962 Bill solved the problem of how to mechanize the sewing of tobacco leaves onto sticks that were then hung in kilns to be cured. Prior to then a number of people tried to come up with an automatic tying machine but it was not until Bill came along that a practical solution was found and perfected.

Thousands of these machines were manufactured and sold between 1962 and the late 1980’s. More background information about the Tobacco Tying Machine can be found here.
