I recently found an ad for a used rolling mill on my local
Craigslist. It’s a 100mm combo mill with gearbox. I contacted the
seller and was assured that the rollers are rust free and smooth.
(His father is a retired goldsmith and was recently disabled so they
are selling some of his tools.) I’m going to go look at it so here is
my big question: There is no brand on the mill. The seller did tell
me there is a label from Shor International on it. They are a NJ
company that sells economy and Italian mills. What should I look
at/for on the mill to determine if it’s a quality mill or an economy
The asking price is $500 and includes a stand. Assuming the mill is
reasonable quality and in good condition, is that a fair price?
Many thanks for advice.
