New lower priced Durston rolling mills


#1

Have you heard of the new Durston C110/F110 rolling mills?

The C110/F110 feature a few small changes to the design that make this lighter-weight, more affordable mill available to every jeweler without sacrificing any operational efficiency or the fine quality results you expect from a Durston mill. A T-bar replaces the usual hand-wheel, the rollers are specially induction-hardened to 64 HRC (to a depth of 6mm on the main barrel) for a lifetime of service, and the bearing blocks are fully supported for the best possible finish on your rolled metal. The rollers offer a generous flat area. The mill features a gear box with no extension rollers.

• Self-lubricating and maintenance-free.
• Protective guard around top gears.

They are available exclusively at RioGrande.com.

Interesting. I suspect the low end mills from India are eating into Durston’s profit, so its nice to see them coming out with a more affordable mill with gears. I couldn’t use a mill without wire rolls, but I suspect a lot of folks don’t make wire (and I only do infrequently). I had one of those inexpensive mills for a while and upgraded to a Durston C130 when it stopped doing what I needed done. I was surprised at the size and heft of the Durston compared to the inexpensive mill. Really, there is no comparison. I have heard poor reviews of the Durstons without gears, this one looks like it might fit the bill for someone on a budget. I love my Durston.
