is a link to my tamale page. At the bottom of the page there is another link that goes into even more detail. Both pages have tons of photos, so they may be of some help, or give you a tip or two.
We made about 30 dozen a couple of months ago and on the last 5 dozen I used a tortilla press instead of spreading the masa by hand.... I really liked the results.
