Folks, I have a possibility of buying a used Karat rolling mill from
a retiring jeweler. He says it’s been used only once (purchased in
March 2000), but he has none of the docs or anything on it. He
describes it as the flat wheels being 75 mm / 3", with gear
reduction, and that there are additional wheels, one with a "knurl"
pattern (his word) and one with 2 different patterns on it.
I’ve spent a couple of hours searching the web to find specs on a
Karat mill that might match this one to see what the “new” sales
price is on it (he’s asking $200), and to get an idea of its
capabilities. No luck. I can’t find a Karat site, and can’t find
anywhere online that stocks them and has online descriptions.
Can any of you either tell me anything about this mill or point me
to a resource for reading up on the Karat mills? I’ve read the
Orchid archives and have found just some anecdotal things about
Karat owners, but not any links to info about the mills.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
