I recently received a rolling mill, but alas, no
instructions at all! I'll have to remember your suggestion about
3-in-1 oil . . . anything else helpful would be greatly
appreciated! Thanks in advance.
Dear Fishbre(?), Find a Machinist supply source in your area and
ask for “Low Sulfer Oil” . From my understanding,this is the best
for rust-prevention. I find that 3-in-1 oil can get “gummy”.
Vegetable based oils like 3-in-1,can attract and hold dirt and
dust. Also, try to avoid pinning the rolls together and cranking
them together, as this will only force any dust(commonly 6 on the
Moh scale, thus harder than even the case-hardening of the rolls!).
