Powermatic 2 Electric Injector

Postby pdpal » Sun Jan 15, 2012 5:10 pm

I roll my own with a Powermatic II and even bought a brand new back up one just in case the first one failed. I love this machine since it makes rolling with a bad hand quick and easy.

Powermatic II electric injector

Postby AAA3330 » Wed Feb 01, 2012 8:25 pm

I first purchased one of these about a year ago and much prefer it to my Top-O-Matic manual. It is so much faster for me. The machine is well built and uses a spoon type injector. A few weeks ago, the gears started slipping from wear so it was time for a new one. I figure that it lasted at least a year. I'm a 2 to 3 pack a day smoker so it's made tons of cigarettes. One thing that I have noticed is it doesn't work well if the tobacco is too moist or too dry. Seems as if I let the tobacco dry overnight that it's just right for injecting. I highly recommend this machine to anyone who's looking for an alternative to the standard manual. I have no affiliation with the company and do not sell these, but just think that they are a great product.

I certainly agree with you AAA3330. I had used the Top-O-Matic for about a year and someone at work told me about the Powermatic 2 and how fast it was. Since I was having trouble with my right hand I decided to get one and loved it so much I bought a second one in case the first one failed. I never had a problem with it jamming if I did not over load it and it made it so much easier and quick to make a weeks worth on Sunday.

Have you tried putting it up on eBay? It might sell faster.

I'm also looking to buy a Powermatic 2, but how do you know the difference between the older Powermatic2 and the newer one when looking for them online ?

The newest one is in a white box. Any other site does not show the box. You can call Roll Your Own and ask what color the box is.

I just recently bought my second Powermatic 2 after my first one wore out. There may be other differences internally, but the only difference that I see is that the newest one doesn't have the reset button for when it jams. It retracts automatically after a jam.

Had my powermatic II for about 6months. Now the tobacco seems to always get stuck in that shaft. Weather hasn't been humid....any suggestions or comments to fix this?

The old one is in a BLACK BOX, although they don't tell you that. I got mine today and saw all of them in the black box with the reset button, so I did research to find out that the new one has NO reset button and comes in a WHITE box. Hope this helps. :)
