Rolling mill source


#1

Hi all,

Last summer I had a student who has begun importing Indian
rolling mills into the US. He recently contacted me with details.
The mill is 4:1 gear ratio, 43mm diameter rolls, 76mm wide flat,
plus a roll or half round and triangular wire, plus two pattern
rolls. For goldsmithing this would be a pretty good mill, I’ve
seen it. The casting was a little rough in one part of the frame
but everything else was fine. The price is $235.00 US plus $20.00
shipping to anywhere in the US by surface UPS. This is the least
expenisve mill I’ve seen in North America and it is pretty good.
Availability and price can change soon apparently.

here’s the least expensive North American source I’ve found for
that Indian mill. 4:1 reduction rearing, 76 mm wide flat roll, a
roll for half round and textured wire. $235.00 + 20.00 shipping
within the US. I’ve seen this mill and would call it a good deal
if you can work with its size limitations. The source is RG
Huber, fax 973-948-5458, tel: 973-948-4157 between 10 and 2 pm
weekdays EST in the US. Charles

Charles: On your advice I bought this mill from Mr. Huber. It
is a good solid rolling mill for the price. I bought the little
kit to quick change the rollers. For the money it can’t be beat.
Thanks again for the Orchid!! Ron W.

Hi Folks,

I have purchased one of these mills from R.G. It hasn’t gotten
a lot of use yet, but it seems a great deal, especially compared
with the prices I’ve seen in the catalogs. He also has a $10
"quick change" kit that makes it easier to change the rollers.
It comes with three extra rollers: one wire and two “pattern”.
I assumed they were for pattern wire, but they’re actually like
textured roll-printing rollers. R.G. only accepts cashiers
checks or money orders.

So far, I have found no deficiencies with the mill, and have
found good use for the $200-$300 I saved! :slight_smile:

Hello everybody: I am looking to buy a rolling mill. The place
where I work has one that is ideal for my needs. It is 120 mm
long and is a combo unit with part for square wire, flat, and 3
slots for making half round wire up to 6 mm wide. It is a (TATUM
T-120). If anybody knows a supplier where I could get one, it
would be appreciated. I have tried Gesswein , Rio Grande and a
few others. Thanks loads
