(Cl. 131-5) This invention relates to cigarette making de vices, and has for the primary object the pro the opposite end of the tubular portion has formed thereon spaced strips 8 and pointed ?aps vision of an e?icient and inexpensive portable or pocket size device especially adapted for roll ing tobacco and cigarette paper into cigarette form with the tobacco packed as tightly as de 9. part In extends at right angles to its respective 5 strip and the other strips are bent into engage ment therewith. The disc-like portion l0 forms sired and completely ?lling the cigarette from end to end and which may be easily actuated to form the cigarette and to remove the latter there 10 from. With these and other objects in view, this in a stop or end wall at one end of the inner member 5. The ?aps 9 are bent at right angles to the strips 8 and cooperate in forming a stop located 10 vention consists in certain novel features of con- ' struction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and 15 claimed. For a complete understanding of my inven tion, reference is to be had to the following de scription and accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view illustrat 20 ing a cigarette making device constructed in ac cordance with my invention and, as shown, con sisting of inner and outer members. Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 2—2 of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view taken 25 on the line 3-3 of Figure 1. Figure 4 is a plan view illustrating the inner member. Figure 5 is a fragmentary perspective view 30 illustrating the portion of the inner member con structed to receive a cigarette paper and to bacco. ~ Figure 6 is a side elevation illustrating the outer member. Figure 7 is a plan view illustrating a blank 35 from which the inner member is constructed. Figure 8 is a transverse sectional view showing cigarette paper and tobacco positioned within the device. Figure 9 is a view similar to Figure 8, showing the edges of the cigarette paper brought together. Figure 10 is a view similar to Figures 8 and 9 showing the cigarette paper and tobacco formed into a cigarette by rotating the inner member rel 45 ative to the outer member. Referring in detail to the drawing, the nu meral I indicates an outer tubular member open at each end and provided with a cutaway portion of a length substantially equal to the length of a 50 cigarette so that said outer member is composed of end tubular portions 2 and an intermediate semicylindrical portion 3. A pocket clip 4 is at tached to one of the tubular portions 2 whereby the device may be clamped within a person’s 55 pocket. The inner member is indicated by the character One of the strips 8 terminates into a sub stantially disc-shaped part In. The disc-shaped at one end of cylindrical portion 6 of the inner member 5. The strips 8 are arranged relative to each other to present a skeleton shaped frame of semicylindrical shape and are adapted to operate within the cutout portion of the outer 15 member and may lie within the semicylindrical portion 3 of the outer member, as shown in Fig ures 8 and 9, and when so located are adapted to receive the cigarette paper and tobacco, as shown in Figure 8. One edge of the paper is then mois- 20 tened and brought into overlapping relation with the other edge of the paper, as shown in Figure 9. The inner member is rotated within the outer member causing the tobacco to become tightly packed and the cigarette paper to assume a cylin drical formation thereby producing a tightly 25 packed cigarette wherein the tobacco extends within the ends thereof. After forming of the cigarette the inner member 5 is withdrawn from the outer member so that the cigarette can be 30 removed by a slight tapping of the inner member on the palm of the hand. i The inner member being partly constructed from the strips 8 will permit an adjustment to be made so that cigarettes of di?erent diameters may be rolled by the device. By bending the 35 strips 8 the space de?ned by said strips may be increased and decreased as desired and which will permit the diameters of cigarettes rolled by the device to be increased and decreased. 40 Having described the invention, I claim: A cigarette making device comprising an outer tubular member having a cutaway portion pro viding to said outer member a semicylindrical portion and cylindrical end portions, an inner 45 cylindrical member rotatably and slidably mount ed in one of the cylindrical end portions and removable therefrom, spaced bendable strips formed on the inner cylindrical member and op erating in the semicylindrical portion of the out- 50 er member and one of said strips having an en larged end bent at right angles thereto, the ends of the other strips bent at right angles to en gage with the enlarged end, and tongues formed on the inner cylindrical member between the 55 5 and consists of a tubular portion 6 having a strips and bent angularly thereto, said tongues and bent ends of the strips forming end stops. knurled ?nger piece 1 formed on one end and _ ERNEST HEY.
