I recently purchased my first rolling mill and this video gives me a lot more confidence in using it. I have a better understanding of how to avoid damage and maintain it. The making and rolling of ingots was new to me and it was helpful to see it done. That information combined with the discussion of flat versus combination rollers would be useful for anyone trying to decide what kind of mill to purchase. My primary desire was to roll print and that subject was well covered. I think there are enough options that an entire video could be devoted to roller printing. It was also informative to see several examples of rolling mills. Although I bought a Durston it is not the only consideration. Good to see other options discussed.

Left me wanting more
This video seems to be geared toward someone brand new to a rolling mill. I didn't walk away with any new information which surprised me. Normally, I am tickled pink with my Interweave dvd purchases. Not so much with this one. Sorry.
