But now, with the table top, the tobacco isn't going all the way to the tip. And it doesn't matter how I pack the table top(I know they all say to start with the sides), the tobacco still doesn't go all the way to the top. No matter how tight I pack the sides of the table top slot.

The Hot Rod tubes are a good option for the table top machines, as are any with a 20mm filter. The Gambler tubes you have been using have 15mm filters. Commercial smokes have either 20 or 22mm filters for king size and 30mm filters for 100's.

He's using the Swift table top machine which, like the Excel can only make King size. There is no adjustment tab.
