Hi Marion
Do you still have binder? Do you know the new price?
I have finished renovating one
Added by John Macleod on 12 February 2007
Sorry but I know nothing about the binder. My father was the salesperson at J & W Tait and he was demonstrating the binder when it came to Orkney to some of the local farmers. Have no idea what happened to it.

my great grandfather was thomas bisset who invented the bisset binder in blairgowrie and was a friend of the wisharts. would love to see one operating.
