    Default tobacco

    In the '50's, half gang: 2 tiers, 3 primers (pickers). No kiln
    hanger.
    Before lunch the tied sticks were hung by the primers who just got in
    from the field. They chained up and hung up all the sticks.
    Find this **** on the net assholes. I've a lot more knowledge
    regarding tobacco. And how the tobacco farm slowly became more and
    more automated. The elevator came into being sometime in the late
    '50's or early 60's. It was basically an adjustable ramp with a
    conveyor belt. The tied sticks were placed upon it and sent up to the
    kiln hanger. He took the stick off, hung it, and waited for the next
    one which was more than likely already there. You want to know about
    my job at uniroyal; the #2 treadtuber? Or more knowlege about tobacco.

    The priming aid came in around 1973. The tying machine a few years
    before that. The tying machine is one big assed mother ****ing sewing
    machine. Leaves are put down, a stick is put down on top of it, and
    leaves on top of the stick. Then the whole thing moves down and is
    sewed up. When finished it is placed upon the elevator and sent up to
    the kiln hanger. No more tier's needed.
    The priming aid. Before the priming aid, the primers (pickers) used
    to walk among the rows and pick leaves. When they had a good armful
    they walked over to the boat (a sled drawn by a horse) and put in
    their bundle of tobacco. and so on. When the priming aid came into
    being, the horse was done. The primers sat upon a chair and the
    machine moved through the fields. The primers picked leaves as they
    were moving through the fields. Back in the '80's, there was an
    autoprimer. No men needed. The machine moved through the fields,
    guided by the pilot, and broke off appropriate leaves. No primers
    needed. This method didn't catch on too much, because many of the
    leaves became broken etc. And a broken tobacco leaf does not fetch as
    much dinero as a non broken high quality one.
    Need more info ****head? Don't hesitate to ask. My knowlege is more
    important than that of a lawyer/accountant/non-hacker. I know how to
    dig holes.

    You wrote that using a computer in air-conditioned comfort. Your hands are
    probably as soft as a baby's cheeks.

    Hey, tell us about your MALARIA again! I love that story.
