Greetings from the looney bin, the name my 25 year old granddaughter
affectionately calls our home on facebook. (I’m sure she doesn’t
think I’m really crazy)
I asked for help on purchasing the correct rolling mill on March 3.
I kept looking at the emails I got and figured nobody had responded
to my question.
OK, I am not a rocket scientist. I am a 60 year old computer
challenged, wanna be master jeweler.
How embarrassing that today I am trying to look for the post
referring to a job offer for a jeweler. I see a few posts from
people who wish they could get the job, and I think to myself, I want
that job!, but I have never seen the original post and I don’t even
know where the job is. I’m thinking to myself, how can that be, that
I can’t find it. So I go to the website to look for it. I am about to
give up when I go into something that brings up old posts and all the
responses in one place. OMG, there is my post! 12 wonderful people
responded and I never saw one of them! Thank you to Leonid, David,
Judy, Emie, Jay, Linda, James,Beth,Susan,Peggy,Chris, and Joy! I
read every one of them. I am so appreciative. of your advice and I
agree with each one.
If you are interested in what I did, on my own, here it is. I spent a
long time researching rolling mills. I decided on the Durston
combination C130. My husband concurred with my decision and I was
about to order it when we had an unfortunate money sucking incident.
Most of my funds went for a hot water tank. Can you imagine? The
So, I got a 280.00 4.1 gear ratio, 80mm made in India rolling
machine. It’s fine. My husband has checked it out, secured it in a
big vise for me. He has taught me how to use it, and it seems fine. I
think while I’m learning, it’ll be OK.
When I want to upgrade, I will simply sell the one I have. I was
happy to see that I made the right choice for the durston and maybe
by the time I know what I’m doing I’ll have a better idea of the size
I want and maybe I’ll find out the Durston 130 is too small for me.
This is such a great group. I live in an area of so few jewelry
people that it is a hugh comfort to have this support. Thanks all.
Never did find the job offer. Too bad, I’d be so right for the job.
