To a/ZZ whom it may concern,.-
manner, as will be hereinafter pointed out,`
reference being had to Athe accompanying drawings, in which like letters indicate similar parts throughout.
Figure 1 is a perspective elevation ot the lower half of the machine. Fig. 2 is a side elevation with end view of the upper half of the machine. Fig. 3 is a sectional elevation showing the manner in which the upper half is appliedxto the lower'half of the machine, and Fig. 4 shows the upper and lower halves of the machine closed together and a cigarettepaper in place thereon.
In this my invention I employ two halves A A of a cylinder, the lower vone of which is formed at one end with iianges B, in which is secured a pin C. A small circular piece of metal or other material D is secured in the lower half of the cylinder, as shown in Figs.
1 and 3, and serves to retain the tobacco inv o pin C, as shown in Fig. 3. 'By means of this said hook and pin a suitable hinge is formed, as will be understood by reference to Figs. 3 and 4. The lower halt-cylinder A is formed at one end with a loop F, to which is secured a suitable chain G, carrying a ring H.
. The manner in which my invention is operated is as follows: A sufficient quantity of tobacco is placed between the halves of the cylinder (see Fig. 3) and distributed along the lower half, (the piece ofmetal D preventing the tobacco coming in contact with the be passed over the cylinder, as shown in Fig.-
4. The machine is then held -in one hand andthe upper half-cylinder is drawn out by means of the hooked piece of metal E. The lower half of the cylinder isthen alsowithdrawn, and the cigarette is ready for use.
Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is- A cigarette machine consisting ot' two halves of a cylinder having the lower half tted with a pieceof metal D and a pin C and formed with a loop F, andthe upper half Iitted with a hookedv piece of metalE, adapted to engage the pin C, and having the ring H, depending from a chain secured to the loop F, all substantially as and for the purposes hereinbefore set forth, and illust-rated in the drawings hereunto annexed.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aftixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
