Thats a great design... what could I use as the fabric, Lether I recon??I do appreciate hand rolling cigars, but it's time consuming. After watching Bob build a home-made one with a plastic mat, I decided to try it with my own plastic map, just taping it to my cutting board and using a 3/4" dowel rod. I was amazed. I could roll in 1/10th of the time, and I could use...fairtradetobacco.comWell here's my review: First off, this thing is one of the finest pieces of equipment I've seen in a long time! BigB should quit his day job and become a metal fabricator, this thing is first class all the way. Initially I had trouble rolling a tight cigar. An email to BigB straightened me out...fairtradetobacco.com
The kingrollers site you showed has an FAQ and says they can send a replacement cloth for $5. You would have to build the roller to fit the cloth.I know its pretty expensive but I'm impatient and wood working isn't my forte.. i got plenty of credit and considering all the stupid stuff I spent money on, this is the least stupid
I was thinking of that one too, I like short thick cigars so I went with the bigger one. Im excited cause I been giving my scrap away cause I can't roll scrap for the life of meOk I just saw this one. They are shooting for the blunt rollers market which I’m not interested in, but it will also do cigars up to 46 ring gauge and 6” long. $95.00. I like small ring gauge cigars anyway and can’t roll worth a hoot. I‘m giving this one some serious thought. Price is right, too.
The Tumbleweed Joint Roller is the most versatile cigarette, blunt, and joint roller on the market. It roll blunts and joints any diameter up to 3/4 inch and up to 6 inches long. Handcrafted in the USAkingrollers.com
So you did order? If you don’t mind I may wait for your review before I decide. It looks like the ring gauge on the Tumbleweeds model is adjustable by removing shims, which would be perfectly fine with me, I would probably only use the one diameter. It appears as though the larger cigar model has a finer, more complicated adjustment control, contributing to the higher cost.I was thinking of that one too, I like short thick cigars so I went with the bigger one.

Less than two hours later I have a reply. He has made a longer Tumbleweeds for previous clients that roll with wrapper leaf and it has a larger ring gauge than the other Tumbleweeds model plus it has the adjustment of the large cigar roller. He has gone to the adjustment style of the large cigar roller on all current Tumbleweeds models. This one is Mahogany rather than Walnut. $235.I see a problem. The Tumbleweeds model is built with a really short table designed for use with square blunt roller papers, rather than long wrapper leaf. I sent an email to see if there was a workaround as I really don’t need the adjustability, complication, or expense of the larger one. Probably not, as I’m sure they are working from jigs to keep costs down, but we will see. I‘ll keep you guys posted.
