Public comments Please follow the link for a leaflet on the cigarette maker; examine it carefully, it’s not the same! Also,please correct the patent no I gave which should be 340841.

Sorry, but this is not the Imperial Collapso cigarette making machine; it’s a different Cantouris product, viz, the cheese sampler, patent no 34081. The cigarette machine is superficially similar.

I’m glad you found this of interest Roger, but sounds like you’d be better off posting this on an online auction site. Hope the rest of your move went well.

Having the usual clear out when recently moving house, I discovered one of these 'devices' (not boxed but loose) and wondered if anyone of your followers would care to make me an offer?
