The Powermatic 3 tube injector works with 84mm (king size) and 100mm cigarette tubes. A simple push of a button is all that is required to switch between the two sizes. The digital display shows you how many tubes you have made, and can be reset to zero at the end of each filling session. This is a great tool to utilise to ensure the machine is not overused (see warranty information below).
- The Powermatic 3 has a limited (return-to-base) warranty for one year or 20,000 cigarettes (whichever comes first) starting from the date of purchase.
- The Powermatic 3 is for domestic use only and is not covered for high volume (over 100 cigarettes per day) or commercial use.
- It is the users responsibility to ensure that the tobacco used is suitably shredded and dried before filling. Tobacco that is too coarse, or too wet, can jam the machine resulting in damage that is not covered by warranty.
- The machine must be returned to the place of purchase and be accompanied by the original receipt, description of the problem, contact information, and return delivery address.
- The machine must be adequately packaged and have no physical damage.
- The machine must be used strictly according to the instruction manual. The warranty does not extend to damage or defects caused by accident, misuse, alteration, or neglect.
- This product is designed for tobacco use only.
Why does the injector rip a small piece of my tobacco paper off after filling the tube?
This can be caused by using a cigarette tube with thin paper. SMOKING branded tubes use a thin paper that can tend to rip when used in electric filling machines like the Powermatic 3. There are two solutions for this which have worked for us.
1. Don't push the tube all the way onto the filling nozzle. Only push it about half way on, or just enough for the grabbing arm to hold the paper.
2. Load the cigarette tube on to the filling nozzle with the seam facing up. Because the paper overlaps in this spot it provides a stronger join. In tests we have run, the tube did not rip at all, even when pushed all the way on to the filling nozzle.
A third option is to use a cigarette tube that uses thicker paper. Laramie tubes (for example) are slightly thicker and did not rip at all on tests that we carried out, even when the tube was fully inserted, and whether or not the seam was facing up.
★★★★★All you diy cig peps need a Powermatic 3Purchased as I watched a few reviews amd frgn love it! If your using the $35 electric rolling machine you will never go back to that after using the Powermatic 3! I was a skeptic but wanted to try. Rolls exactly like the brought cigs and you can flick without the cig falling off etc. Can't wait for the next version and only 3 seconds to roll a cig!
★★★★★I love this machineThis is a great machine however it will not handle fine, dusty or wet tobacco sieve the tobacco in a kitchen sieve and the waste can be used in an auger type machine. Long strands also fail to feed but at least they don't jam the machine just open the hopper and break them up with your fingers. After about 7000 cycles the little rubber tube that clamps the cigarette tube gets worn an easy fix is to cut about 100 mm of aquarium air hose to replace it then as this wears just pull off and snip the worm piece off and replace. I have 2 of the earlier versions both now need work and I suspect a build up of crud on the end of the injector spoon. DO NOT use fine or wet tobacco it will just cause you a lot of grief, expect to get a good life from this machine if you do that.
