Tanner's invention "relates to that class of machines in which rollers without belts are employed; and it consists in a novel combination and arrangement of a series of bed-rollers with two releasing-rollers, which are separately controlled, and in their peculiar arrangement with relation to each other, so that the several functions of mold, binder, and wrapper are practically performed, and with which a perfect cigar may be made, requiring only for its completion that its tuck end be cut or squared off." (Patent Number 131,474)
