I have a 1976 MF 124 baler. While baling over the weekend it developed a problem it has never had before, where on one side (always the same side)I would find where like it tried to knot 2-3 times but all the twine was just wrapped up around the knotter with long lengths running down the bale chute but nothing actually tied on that side. I showed a pic to some experienced folks who said they had never seen that before. I did just recently sharpen the blades. We put up 714 bales but based on our physical count and the baler counter, had 36 that missed. Any suggestions are appreciated.

When our 224 did that there was usually twine jammed in the stack of the sure tie knotter plates that held them open.
