There are so many ways that a rolling mill can be used. I will write
some up and they can be used by Jay or whoever is interested. If you
go to my blog: ‘On your metal’ on Ganoksin.
See: ‘Forging a heavy signet ring using the rolling mills’ You can
form beautiful tapers by regressive rolling, ie. starting with square
stockgage and rolling up to a mark, (perm marker) then reversing,
rotate metal 90dg. small tightening of rollers, re-mark,say,10mm down
from previous return point, roll to new mark, return, rotate,
re-mark, tighten, repeat, doose -e-doo and so on.
Also similarly for sheet only no rotation.
You may have to experiment to get the measurements to the sequential
diminutions to suit your purposes.
Get your shoulder to the wheel!
