Rolling mills are ideal for smoothly and gradually reducing the thickness of metal stock to achieve the exact gauges you need for the variety of jewelry-making and metal-forming work you perform. This affordable Durston TUI F130 rolling mill offers flat rollers and is ideal for creating custom metal gauges and adding texture to metal sheet for use in jewelry designs. The mill features extension rollers with four "D" grooves and a high-precision epi-cyclic gearbox that provides higher turn efficiency and smooth operation. Square grooves produce cut-corner square wire for easier rolling and drawing. Roll sheet with ease using this versatile mill. Use pattern plates in the flat area to emboss sheet for more detailed and complex designs.
This rolling mill has easy to use controls for speeding up or slowing down, and an emergency stop button. The mill offers variable speed in both forward and reverse and features a single, centrally located emergency stop button. Safety bars on the front and back, and a top cover over the gears helps prevent injury during use. The gears and frame are constructed of cast-iron for strength and rigidity. An aluminum gearbox, a steel base frame and main plate, and sheet metal guard make the TUI model both more affordable and a bit lighter in weight.
