Purchasing a rolling mill


#1

I am very interested in purchasing a rolling mill. I would not be
making constant use of it, but since I often make larger pieces of
jewelry (in base metal), a tiny mill is probably not the best for
me. Does anyone in upstate New York or northern Pennsylvania have a
good used mill to sell (since I know that shipping costs can be
ferocious)? Or do you have other advice?

A good, less-expensive new rolling mill would be OK with me. I know
that Durston is the “cadillac” but I’m not sure that I need that
great a product for occasional use. I looked at Kenneth Singh’s site
but could not find rolling mills listed!

Thanks in advance!

Hi Judy

It’s not exactly upstate New York, but Gesswein in Bridgeport, CT
carries used equipment (including rolling mills). They have a site
gesswein.com. Doesn’t Metalliferous carry used equipment as well?

Good Luck

Judy, You might want to contact Kenneth Singh even though his site
does not list rolling mills. I purchased a Karat rolling mill from
him a few years ago, and it was relatively inexpensive, and works
fine. I got it to supplement my regular mill which only had flat
rollers, and i needed wire rollers. Kenneth was very helpful in
advising me how to set it up.

Kim,

If you need a small rolling mill and want it new harbor freight
sells one usually around 250.00 shipping included. It is ok for most
applications but it’s greatest limitation is the opening distance it
not great, only @ 1/4 inch then the gears start to come unlinked.
