Yeah that's what I figured. Basically I wanted to know if there was any possible way to mod the pre-built rolling machine to hook up to a motor to return consistent rolling, but also has enough torque to do it successfully(using weights or whatever else necessary).

Well, I would like to add more once that main part is complete, such as a way to drop tobacco down into the roller's reservoir, auto insert the paper, etc. I'm just a lot more trained in programming than the hardware side of things. And how difficult it would be to construct the roller from scratch.

Okay so I want to try to make an electronic cigarette roller, similar to: http://zigzag.com/images/roller-78mm.jpg except obviously electronic and powered by the arduino UNO board. The problem I'm having is just determining how feasible it actually is. It seems simple enough from a code stand point, but just thinking about it I think I will have to make a whole new rolling system(one on some kind of gears) for the roller then set the gears to turn via the motor? I just don't think using a regular pre-made auto roller will be able to smoothly turn via motor. Open to all questions, suggestions or general feasibility. Thanks.
