Abstract : The patent describes an improved apparatus for tying a relatively stiff tie wire around a cluster of wires or cables. Counterrotating discs having wide slots enable the discs to be placed down around the cluster of wires to be tied. The apparatus has a timing mechanism for providing a predetermined number of revolutions of the wrapping discs and a stopping mechanism for stopping the discs at a specified point to insure that the slots will be aligned when the tie is completed thereby facilitating removal of the apparatus.
