In the "Chopping Room" cured and dried tobacco is placed in drums where four "stamps" with two "knives" attached to each stamp, chop the tobacco into raw snuff. The stamps with the attached knives are driven up and down by the gears of the windmill. At this stage in the process, the raw snuff is still too coarse. It will be ground down further before being packaged and sold. (Photo © Jock Fistick)
