This small rolling mill is used for corrugating thin gauges of soft metal sheet. Use this mill mounted in a vise or attached to a bench. The small mill will handle soft precious metal sheet up to 24mm wide. The samples of corrugated materials shown in our detailed images were made with 6.0mm wide 30 gauge (0.25mm/.010") fine silver sheet. Thicker material can be attempted, but the corrugated effect is not as pronounced, as our attempts with 26 gauge (0.40mm/.016") copper sheet produced more of a marking effect than corrugation.
This is a direct drive simple mills with neither the size nor the leverage to move hard or thick metals without risking damage to the rolls or the frame.
This mill has four different pairs of corrugating rolls with different spacing of teeth, from very fine to coarse. Tensioning is done with the large knob on top. Mill can be disassembled if the rolls become stuck. Made in Italy. Dimensions: 9" tall by 3-1/2" by 2-1/2"
