Any recommendations for using my new to me press mold recently purchased from fleabay?

I have scraped all of the old tobacco and brushed it out, it doesn't smell off putting or anything and the pin is tight. I wonder how long ago it was cut in half...

I'm sure some of you saw this one on fleabay, I ended up buying it and it has cleaned up nicely

If one of you have a replacement mat for this particular type, that long streak is a rubber cement or glue of some sort..

I will photograph it again when I build my portable table, he has some molds I believe could be packaged and offered a fair price for some together. But my budget has been exhausted... all of the paint has cleaned off, and the only real rust is on the adjustable knob for tension on the mat.

I have used it, it works well and I temporarily clamp it to the counter.

That sounds and looks good. looking at it.. It should smell like dusty attic so, that is nice it doesn't. but, I see the nails need some work. The dry T juice should get scraped off the wood. it looks like it would work like that maybe, minus the two nails look like they could be in the way. They would make nice Crook cigars.

It does have some (3) little tabs under those nails that hold the mold apart about 3/32". I will remove them and replace the regular nails. I bunched 6 test cigars for it tonight, had to try it.....on cigar rollers on Fakebook, someone suggested olive oil to be applied.... I have never heard of olive oil, tongue oil, or beeswax based cutting board oil yes. But never olive oil. Any opinions?

OMG! so .., that is cast aluminum? Pictures please. Have you seen @Yultanman thread? > https://fairtradetobacco.com/threads/lieberman-question.10082/ You see the mat I used there. he maybe would like some measurement off that.
When he fist listed, I wanted to drive straight to him and buy-all-now or get @Gdaddy to at least. want, what ya gonna do.
I will photo it with a ruler behind. And yes, it is cast aluminum. The roller is a hollow brass tube with bushings that were seized. They cleaned up easily. The buncher works well even with the mat not in the best of shape. I crossed my fingers and ended up with a bit of a treasure. It appears to be like the ones you can buy for 600+ on leafonly.com

I would have bet you had some leaf in it already. You could treat it. I would say all the work is in working the butter in the wood. It take some time to settle.I have seen some variation in spoon better ingredients. It will taiste like olives though.
There are another set of molds I've bid on tonight. Hopefully I interpreted it correct. It appears to be two molds. Looks like two different molds.
I remember that pic. I think I liked that lot. lets see it.

thank you.. OMG! I am so freaking out for you. that is so nice and yes, that is the gold I think. It looks like the in stock pic. You may want to see the other weed cigar dudes video showing it in some detailed use. their sell is 7 plus hundred.

I found that mold lot and I was going to jump on it. I don't have those sizes. they look straight. there is some cleaning and maybe some filler needed.
Its $30 a piece to me that sounds good to me. not doing it though. there is the lack of plural thing in the description. maybe to late to ask?
