What would be a good choice for a rolling mill for a a fairly new
metalsmith? I mostly work with silver and like to use texture in my
work. I noticed that there are some inexpensive mills from India
and I was wondering if they are worth buying. I don’t do heavy
production yet and I don’t have a big budget but I really want to
get a rolling mill. I also don’t want to waste my money either. I
was told by another jeweler that I should not bother with a mini
mill either. What would be a good size mill to get and what
capabilites are most important? Should I get one with multiple
rollers or is a combination mill the way to go? Any informed input
will be greatly appreciated. The Orchid community contains such an
incredible group of people with so much knowledge and experience
that I just couldn’t lurk any longer without asking for help. I’ve
learned alot through this forum and I hope one day to be able to
share my experience when I feel I have enough of it to share.
Thanks in advance for anyone’s advice.
