I thought I was in need of an inexpensive rolling mill, but
after trying a manual one, I think I’d rather spend the bucks to
get a motorized one! (Its going to take a few years before I see
one of those babies!!!) : )

And, in regard to a pencil torch. I purchased one of those a
long time ago . …tiny flame, propane . . . I couldn’t solder
anything with it. I was making large pieces with big bezeled
stones. Are you sure you need the pencil torch??? Or would a
torch (such as a presto-lite) work if you are careful not to
continue to point the flame at one spot?

there is a difference in types of rolling mills. Some are geared
so that less effort is needed to crank. Of course, this type will
cost more. Two other things affect how hard they are to use…the
size or the “bite” and how well annealed the metal is.

Try one with a reduction gear setup. Very easy and cheaper.
