Encouraged by Suzanne, I took the plunge and ordered a rolling mill. I’ve put it off because I was being snobby about buying a really good one and they run about $1,200. I found a small one at [Harbor Freight Tools](http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=4832) and the cost with shipping was only around $200 so I figured it would be worth the investment. If it’s something I use all the time and need an upgrade in the future, I can invest in the Durston mill.
So, you’re probably wondering what in the world I would do with a rolling mill – besides smash metal. I can imprint patterns on metal and roll wire to different thicknesses. These are things that can’t be done with the equipment I have. I’m sure I’ll be discovering more in the coming months as I play with it and get to know it. Look for new, fun jewelry soon!
