Imprinted design in Rolling Mills


#1

I have seen these machines on fishermans wharf in San Francisco.They
are basically rolling machines with the roller imprinted with a
design.I was curious as to how to get my own pattern etched on a
roller that would fit in my rolling mill.Anyone have a solution or
source? Thanks J Morley Coyote Ridge Studio

You may want to try Henery Evers Co in Providence RI,may not be the
place but is a good starting point I’m sure

One of the other jewelers on the island makes engraved steel dies
that he rolls through the mill to make sections of his jewelry. Having
a whole roller patterned could be expensive, though you might be able
to etch or sandblast the pattern onto the surface if you did not need
incredible detail.

Rick, After reading this on Orchid, I was wondering if you knew a
place that would make these steel engraved dies. It sounds perfect
for my needs. Any info is greatly appreciated. Sharon Bloom
