He said the molds were made in Pennsylvania, I live in Pennsylvania, man I would love to have one of them. Wonder where they are made? I know quite a few of us would love these perfecto style molds, we should do some digging and find out who is making them and if any could be had.
Several years ago, that business experienced a catastrophic fire that consumed everything. If I recall correctly, the fire occurred at right about the time that cigar manufacturers suddenly stopped offering their old and worn cigar molds for sale through various vendors.
So I am trying to get serious about the perfecto wrapping and I am wondering what approach the veterans around the forum use? Webmost has the S video but I am struggling to get as smooth a wrap as I'd like .. not complaining, just saying Bliss has a Solomon video where the tip of the wrapper leaf is left attached but sectioned out of the roll and eventually flags the foot (similar to one of the videos above). I am wondering about the approach in the Mysterio video of flagging the foot as step one? MarcL I was wondering if you would be will to share your approach, in particular the nipple and foot? (before someone else makes the accusation ... yes I have nipple envy) As always, thanks all for your help!!!
If I do not do this, I will attach a detached flag first to the foot cut from the tip of the leaf from which the rest of the wrapper will be cut. It will be high enough to enable the wrapper to start beyond the curve.
Admiring your latest achievements, your rear perfecto was under filled (not enough leaf), over bound (to tight/small for the mold) or under set. (we wet it so it will mold and dry it so it will set)
The forward stick shows an under cased wrapper.
