I Like the crank style the best as t auto tend to work but I find the tobacco falls out a lot more on the power ones.

I've watched videos of the Powermatic 2 plus in use, but not with the type of shred I get from the new heavy duty shredder. They're all using commercial stuff from a bag. Does anyone here use it with the heavy duty shredder?

I've got an older manual injector I was given. I've considered getting an electric one. I've made just over 3 cartons with it so far, and I find I have to be careful.not to.over fill the slot. I don't like a loosely packed cigarette. My injector seems to prefer shred that is on the low side of low case; less friction being slid into the tube.

My injector likes low case also. If the case is too high the draw is hard like sucking a straw through a too thick milkshake. I inject sort of loose (not too loose) but then hit the butt end of the filter about three times or so on the table to pack it about right. Then I twist the end of the cigarette paper to avoid loose tobacco falling out and I can carry it in a cigarette case without losing tobacco or making the cigarette too loose.

I like these Top cigarette cases that are separated into three compartments. Two compartments will hold twelve cigarettes, the other compartment is the perfect size for a Bic lighter. Since they are separated, the lighter doesn’t smash the cigarettes.
