Tears paper from plug and examines filter material for defects. Measures and examines plug seams, using magnifying glass with graduated scale. Records findings on chart. Notifies CIGARETTE-FILTER-MAKING-MACHINE OPERATOR or MACHINE ADJUSTER of deviations from specifications. Tests air draft of filter rods, using draft-resistance meter.
