(Cl. 131-52) ~ 2 1 The invention relates to a cigarette rolling ma chine of the general type havinga belt longi tudinally overlying a base, and base-carried lend of the base 5 remote from the rod I0 and projects beyond said base end. This plate is pro vided with upstanding side flanges I6 which slid means cooperable with said belt in forming a ablyY engage the outer sides of the steps 1 of lthe base side flanges 6. A second removable rod pocket, portion said of the means latter including into a means tobacco-receiving for operat I 1 extends through-openings in` the flanges I 6 ing said belt to roll the tobacco and to encase it and through a loop in the adjacent end of the in a gummed cigarette paper. ' belt 9 and anchors this belt end, said rod I'I ex The object of the invention is to provide a new tending slidably across >the upper "edges of the and improved machine of the type set forth in 10 steps 1. The rod I'I may be removably held in which exceptionally simple and inexpensive, yet place in any suitable way, for instance by provid elîective provision is made for longitudinally ad ing it with a bent end I8 to hook over one of the justing one end of the belt to vary the size of flanges I6, -securing said rod in much the same the tobacco-receiving loop, enabling the operator manner that the rod I0 is commonly secured. to produce cigarettes of desired diameter. 15 The outer end of the plate I5 is provided with With the foregoing in view, the invention re a third upstanding flange I9 having its ends se sides in the novel subject _matter hereinafter de cured to the flanges I6, said iiange I9 having a scribed and claimed', description being accom central opening 20 in which an adjusting screw plished by reference to the accompanying draw 2l is rotatably mounted. The inner end of this ings. 20 screw is threaded through an opening 22 in an Figure 1 is a side elevation. upstanding lug 23 which is suitably secured to Fig. 2 is a top plan view. the base 5. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view on line By rotating the adjusting screw 2|, the plate 3--3 of Fig. 2. I5 will be adjusted inwardly or outwardly to Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional View on line 25 similarly adjust the rod Il and the connected 4_4 of Fig. 3'. end of the belt 9, thereby changing the capacity In the drawings above brieiiy described, the of the pocket I4 as required. numeral 5 denotes an elongated horizontal base To aid in adjusting the plate I5, it is prefer having upstanding longitudinal side flanges E, able lto provide said plate with a scale, said scale each of said ñanges preferably having a lowered 30 being cooperable with the adjacent end of the step portion 'I at one end. An arched plate or base 5. In the present disclosure, scale marks 24 bed 8 is ñxedly mounted upon the base 5, and (Fig. 2) are provided directly upon the plate I5, a belt 9 longitudinally overlies said base and rests but a separate scale could be secured to said on said plate or bed 8, one end of said belt 9 , plate, if desired. being anchored to a transverse removably 35 From the foregoing, taken in connection with v, mounted rod I0 at one end of said «base 5. A the accompanying drawings, it will be seen that transverse roller II underlies the belt 9 and is simple and inexpensive provision has been made rotatably supported by a U-shaped yoke I2, the for attaining the desired end. By having the ends of which are pivoted at I3 to the flanges E plate I5 slidably underlie the base 5, and by hav of the base 5. The roller II and arched plate or 40 ing the pin or rod I1 slidably overlie the adja bed 8 are cooperable with the belt 9 in forming a cent ends of the flanges 6, and by having the side portion of the latter into a tobacco-receiving ñanges I6 of said plate slidably engage said ad pocket I4, which pocket will be formed over one jacent ends of said flanges 6, said plate is slidably end of the base 5 when the yoke I2 is swung to mounted in an effective manner and may be ward said end of said base, and will be formed 45 easily adjusted when required. over the other end of said base when said yoke Excellent results have been obtained from the is swung toward the latter. Swinging of the details disclosed and they are, therefore, prefer yoke, Iafter placing the tobacco in the pocket I4, closes this pocket. Then, a gummed cigarette paper -With its gum moistened, is laid upon the belt 9 and the operation of the yoke I2 is con tinued, causing the tobacco to be rolled and en cased in the cigarette paper, all cf which is old ably followed, but it is obvious that minor varia tions may be made within the scope of the in vention as claimed. I claim: , 1. A cigarette rollingv machine comprising a base, a belt longitudinally overlying said base, and well known. means anchoring one end of said belt to one end A rectangular plate I5 slidably underlies the 55 of said base, means on said base and cooperable 2,405,388 3 with said belt in forming a portion of the latter into a tobacco-receiving pocket, said means in cluding means for operating said belt to roll the tobacco placed in said pocket, a plate slidably underlying the other end of said base, said plate having two upstandingprojections slidably en gaging the longitudinal edges of said base, a transverse pin to which the other end of said 4 ably overlying said other end of said base, a third upward projection on said plate spaced out wardly from said other end of said base and having an opening, a lug projecting upwardly from this end of said base and having an open ing alined with the aforesaid opening, and an adjusting screw rotatably mounted in the first mentioned opening and threaded through the opening of said lug for longitudinally adjusting belt is anchored, said pin being carried by said upstanding projections and slidably overlying 10 said plate and said other end of said belt to vary said other end of said base, and manually oper able adjusting means connectîng said plate with said other end of said base for longitudinally adjusting said plate and said other end of said belt to vary the size of said pocket. 2. A cigarette rolling machine comprising a base, a belt longitudinally overlyingsaid base, the size of said pocket. ` ’ 3. A structure as specified in claim 1; said base having longitudinal upstanding flanges at its edges, said two upstanding projections of said plate consisting of flanges slidably engaging said flanges of said base, and said transverse pin ex tending slidably across the upper edges of said ñanges of said base. ‘ means anchoring one end of said belt to one end 4‘; A structure as specified in claim 2; said of said base, means on said base and cooperable with said belt in forming a portion of the latter, 20 base having longitudinal upstanding flanges at its edges, said two upstanding projections of said into a tobacco-receiving pocket, said> means in plate» consisting of ñanges slidably engaging said cluding means for operating said belt to roll the tobacco placed in said pocket,` a plate slidably underlying and projecting beyond the other end of said base, said plate having two upstanding projections slidably engaging the longitudinal edges of said base, a transverse pin to which the other end of said belt is anchored; said pin being carried by said upstanding projections and slid ñanges of said base, said transverse pin extend ing slidably across the upper edges of said flanges of said base, and said third upward projection of said plate consisting of a flange secured at its ends to the aforesaid flanges of said plate.
