It is similar Jeckylnz, but this is compacting the bundle and rolling it, the cigarette machine stuffs the tube. Let me do some fumbling around in the shop and see if I can come up with a workable design.

We.re talking about the thumb rollers for filterless cigs. Dope smokers use them to roll doobies. It has two rollers with loose vinyl around the rollers like the lieberman machine.

Yeah that's the one I mean... They come out real tight if ur not careful in them..I only used one wen I was a kid first starting out but like I said not to smokable cause of being so tight,iv aways just hand rolled after that.but stogies are a bit bigger than that,maybe if my hands wer four times bigger it would b jusr as easy to roll them:)

Boboro had a cigarillo roller for small cigars. It was just like the cigarette rollers. It was made by zig zag or somebody like that.
We need to find out if boboro ever used that cigarillo roller. Something bigger but similar design might work.

One end of the cloth needs to be adjustable (as well as anchored), since the linear amount of slack in the rubberized sheet determines the circumference of the bunch that it will make.

Heah bob is that buncher in Chris's post only attached at one end with the other free for the thickness to b easily adjusted??
