I used an old pasta machine for along time to shred my tobacco pretty cheap and worked well for years.

Yes pasta cutters work well for cigs and pipe tobacco. I finally broke down and bought a Powermatic shredder. I do have to say it has saved me a ton of time and has a very consistent shred

For hand rolling tobacco you need a finer cutting.

Happy New Year!

As long as it can shed anywhere from .05 and .08. Some will not get that fine but there are a lot that will.
