I've just cleaned my garden shredder and tried it on my tobacco. Absolutely brilliant! I'll put them in the food processor for a quick spin, but most of it is chopped enough for rolling already.

The top one is the same as ours. Don't know if they do this in the US. So the bottom one is as similar as I can find.

That sounds good
Do you only shred it once, or do you do it a couple of times. just thinking if you do it twice does it make it smaller.

depends on how much you got to spend on one,,

a pasta shredder, is only 40$

whereas a shredder fresh on the market, by powermatic, is 300$

I just bought an attachment for my pasta cutter, it shreds at 0.8 mm and cost 20 quid, about thirty bucks. Works well and shreds fine enough for hand rolling. I'm new to growing and am experimenting with shredding while only part dried before allowing it to dry fully. My plan is then to attempt to cure in a crockpot. What do you experts think of my chances of success?
All the best, Paul.

I was thinking of hanging my native tobacco on a wire in the log cabin. It would take a couple of months and then I would strip the leaves off the stalk and shred it with the food processor. My plants did well this winter in 50 degrees and full sun when it hits the window. I look forward to putting them outside this May to see how tall they get. Last year they did not get any higher than 1 1/2 ft. This is a strain from the old Cherokee strain I was given. These seeds were obtained from 1,000 year old cherokee tobacco seeds found in a cave. I wonder if they are actually Mayan, Aztec, or what? The bloom is yellow but does not have the green center that others are referring to.
