We love our Durston at work - but we don’t look after it as well as
some do. Despite this, it’s in great condition The reason is that
they are amazing mills. If you have a photo of it, and it looks good
in the photo, then it will be good in real life, even if it’s old.
Sure, you might have to do some recalibration and oiling, but the
metal will be in great condition. If there’s anything wrong with it,
it will be obvious in a photo.
Durston’s are fantastic mills - even American jewellers speak highly
of them; they must be good for Americans to like a British mill over
an American alternative.
