1. Open the lid and fill the trough of the band with tobacco. For economy and efficiency start by using just enough to fill the trough. Too much makes the machine difficult to operate.
2. Moisten the gum on a rolling paper and place this on the band with the gummed edges uppermost and the lower edge behind the tobacco.
3. Start closing the lid in order to engage the paper in the band and then complete this movement, closing the box with a slow uniform pressure on both sides of the lid. The paper and tobacco will then become perfectly rolled and will appear through the closed lid.
