Miller Hand-Bunching Machine

This machine has been very popular for many years. The bunch is made immediately in front of the machine, the whole rolling platen of machine being pulled forward by the handle. It has been proven that a skilled operator can turn out more than double the amount of bunches a day, either scrap or long fillers, than by hand alone. This machine has some advantages in that the bunch is always visible, being immediately under the operator's eyes, so that the operator can see just how it is getting along. The belt is adjustable for any bunch size.

DuBrul's Patent Hand Bunching Machine

____

Practical to make any shape with unskilled labor

This is one of the most popular with the trade. Its simple construction, compactness and practicability are so apparent to the experienced manufacturer that is to describe its operation and advantages at length. It can be applied on any ordinary cigar-maker's table by cutting a square hole, so that the machine rest on. The binder having put in place, the bunch is rolled as shown in fig 3. The object of the machine is not so much speed acquired with it as uniformity of shape and regularity of sizes obtained by its use. With this design the savings in binder need hardly be mentioned as manufacturers know well that only one need ever be used on a machine-made bunch.Skilled operators are materially assisted, while unskilled hands soon become experts by the use of the device. The rolling apron is made adjustable to roll any size of bunch required.

Molds

“The only mold that makes creaseless cigars”

Our vertical mold was introduced to the trade in 1876. It immediately made a great stir in the cigar manufacturing circles, and it won unqualified approval from the moment its many points of superiority were tested. It is a fact that with the same skill, far better goods are made where our cigar molds are used than where other molds have been adopted on account of their so called cheapness. The reason is plain, the ordinary mold be it German or American has ill fitting tops with thick edges creating the crease line in the cigar bunch.

In the Miller, DuBrul & Peters Molds there is no use to re-pressure after the bunch has once been press. Perfect cigars, resembling in every respect the best hand made and easily to handle cigars made by our molds.

Item # EDDAS

Note: Owing to the great number of sizes and shapes used by the trade today, we can not carry a stock of molds, but have to make all molds to order, according to the size and quantity wanted. Our machines are very complicated, and the cost of setting up and adjusting for each shape is considerable. We can not afford, therefore, to sell one, two or three molds of any size, they most be on counts of 10 or more.

This tobacco cutter is a power machine, and combines a sitting and sorting arrangement with a cutting apparatus. The tobacco is fed into the trough at the top, whence it is carried by an endless belt to the rollers. Theses rollers are supplied with a circular knives, which cut the tobacco lengthwise. After passing between the rollers, the tobacco is cut crosswise by straight knives, two in number, fastened to the spokes of the fly wheel at the front end of the machine. This knives are set so as to give a draw cut, making a clean cut, the scrap drops into the rotary sieves, having different sizes of meshes, and so separating the dust from the scrap, and the different sizes of scrap from each other, each size dropping in to a separate compartment. The length of each mesh is regulated proportionally to the speed, so as not to over sift the scrap. To work the machine to the best advantage, the tobacco should be moistened enough to have it in a soft condition.

Conical Rotary Sifter

This sifter has proven great value for screening and separating scraps from small cuttings, also for obtaining a uniform size of cut-filler when using same. The fine sand screen is made of brass. The other screens are galvanized iron, with soldered meshes, giving them strength and preventing rusting. This machine is built of iron, strongly constructed, and is first-class in every respect. It is perfectly noiseless, the upper side and top being closed up, as shown in the dotted lines, forming a table to receive tobacco, which is then fed by hand. This also confines the dust inside the machine.

Price $45.00

This machine has been popular for many years. Its capability is about 400 pounds per day, varying with the steady work of the operator. It is made with a revolving cylinder of circular – toothed blades. These blades run between the stationary – toothed bar, where the tobacco is cut. The crap falls through a grating to the sifter, and thence out of the machine. The tobacco should be just moist to prevent making dust. We have lately improved this machine in many respects, and it is now provided with a rotary sifter the very best sifter for this purpose.

DuBrul's Tobacco Cleaner and Separator

Price of machine, complete as shown in illustration, $ 75.00 

All manufacturers who have ever used short fillers knows what a loss and annoyance is occasioned by the presence of foreign matter among the tobacco. Nails, pins, screws, matches, bread, meat , buttons, and many numbers of other things, manage to get into the tobacco, and makelife a burden. One piece of such matter in a single cigar may ruin the sale of thousands. It is absolute necessity to have to clean fillers; and, to have such, the cuttings nust first be cleaned. After many experiments, we have constructed a machine, here illustrated, which will quickly and effectually remove all foreign substances. It consist of a blower and an inclined pipe, fitted at the top wit a hopper. Into this hopper the cuttings are fed by one or two operators. By a special construction chamber inside the pipe, the air current carries up and out all the cuttings, while all the heavier substances are separated. At the top of the machine is another pipe that carries off the dust and fibrous hairs, so commonly found in tobacco, thereby sweetening the tobacco to a wonderful degree. The careful manufacturer will at once realize the importance of such a machine.
