Useful tips to avoid problems while using cigarette roller machines
You need to ensure that you fill your tobacco into the corners of the tobacco chamber. This prevents the “empty space” problem. Put enough tobacco in the corner where you attach the cigarette tube and fill it to the tip of the machine.
Also, ensure your tobacco is evenly distributed. You can use your hands to spread it out or lightly pack it down with your fingers.
After injecting the cigarette tube with tobacco, check around the filter to see if there is a gap. If so, fill your chamber with more tobacco until you have eliminated the gap to get the desired density for your cigarette. With time, you will get to know exactly how much tobacco to put into the tube and chamber.
If you notice that the cigarette is packed too tight, you can add a little less tobacco and ensure it is distributed evenly inside the chamber. Keep removing just a little tobacco at a time until you achieve your preferred density for your cigarette.
On the other hand, if you have a cigarette that is packed too loose, continue adding tobacco a little at a time until it gets to preferred density.
However, be sure to use a tool or your finger to lightly pack your tobacco down into the chamber before you inject it into the tube. In no time, you’ll get a feel for how much tobacco to use.
Note that if your cigarette is tearing or ripping during the injection process, you either don’t have your tobacco evenly distributed or you’re adding too much of it. So try to add less tobacco at a time and evenly distribute it across the chamber before you pack it down lightly. Continue the process until you get your desired cigarette density.
If your cigarette tube is pushed off the machine or does not stay on during the injection process, it might be caused by tobacco and debris around the cigarette machine tip. This excess tobacco or debris in this area might lead to poor “grip by the machine on the end of the cigarette tube. Hence, ensure you clean the area around the cigarette tube.
Once the cigarette tube is in place, close the lid and press down on the end of the lid that is close to the cigarette tube while injecting the cigarette. This pressure helps to hold the cigarette tube tip in place during the process of injection.
Cigarette roller machine are simple, efficient and user-friendly.
