while searching for plans to make my own bunching machine i found some very nice cigarette rolling machines made by a guy in his garage and selling them on etsy.com

we might be able to convince him to make some in a larger size so as to accomodate cigar rolling

1 slight problem though , he does have a negative review from someone who didnt recive his item


still if you are interested have a look , the work he does is beautifull

They look pretty nice but I favor my electric tube filler for cigarettes. It seems like if you used this type of roller for cigars you would be cleaning pectin from it after each use.

If you wish to roll cigars, the bigbonner has fancy belted machines for sale in the commercial section.

I use these for ciggies.
http://www.amazon.com/Rizla-Cigarette-R ... zla+roller

Gotta buy a pair at a time because sometimes the belts quit quickly, others last quite a while.
They are sold locally for $4us.
...and I only buy the 110mm size... the blue plastic frame with orange belt. Can use any size papers, and the belts are superior to all others.
Best

Here's a pic from rollingpaperdepot...

and I found another at wholesalerollingpapers

I think it rolls 1/2" x 12", for about $10us.

I just got a reply from king rollers and he seems quite pleased with the prospect of new customers (who isnt right ?)


this is his reply
"Hello Owen,

Yes, I make a special "Jumbo Roller", which is a modified Tumbleweed that I sell for $75.00. It comes with two rolling rods of different diameter rod. I also increase the length of the rolling material and modify the rolling slot to allow for a larger diameter product to be rolled. They are really nice and people like them.

Here is a photo of what they look like (a standard Tumbleweed Oak). This photo only has one rod displayed, I don't glue on one of the knobs so you can switch out the rods.

If you were to purchase several at once, I could give some sort of discount.

Looking forward to working with you."


and here are the attatched pictures

ok im stuck , how you insert pictures ?

I have a roller very similar to that. The problem is it doesn't roll tight enough for a cigar. I agree with RC, BigBonner's cigar roller is top of the line. I "borrowed" it for a few weeks and it is fantastic.
