You always hear about repairs made with Baling wire, but sheesh, try and find the stuff these days. The reason it was used for repairs, besides the fact that soft ductile wire is ideal for binding stuff to other stuff, is that it was a common waste item down on the farm. Since hay bales are no longer tied with wire, what are you going to do? There are still companies that distribute baling wire, but what if you just want to pick up a small amount? It seems that rebar tie wire is an acceptable substitute, and you can get a 3 lb. coil of generic “tie wire” pretty cheaply. I have several small coils of wire I’ve picked up at yard and estate sales and it comes in handy!
So what do you guys think, Hot or Not? — especially in light of its seeming unavailability and alternative materials such as duct tape?
