Rolling mill needed.

Hihi, I am looking for a calgary connection with a large hydraulic rolling mill, or, alternatively, I am looking for 999 fine silver sheet in 20 guage. I'd like to either have someone roll it, find a hydraulic rolling mill for sale, or but the silver sheet pre rolled. Please any suggestions? TIA

You definitely don't need a hydraulic slip roll to roll 20g silver, that can be done with a hand crank roller, i couldn't tell you where to buy the silver however

Just buy a knock off hand crank roller, 200-300$, a 3 roll roller, especially so small and rolling soft silver isn't really a high precision tool, nor powerfull, spending 1100 bucks on one would be overkill

In my experience using large slip rollers the quality of outcome is based far more on the skill of the operator than the price of the roller

Thanks guys for finishing my thought before I mentally I wandered off to Hawaii LOL. I wanted to say there are offshore versions of the 'established' lines, example John. Do some Reviews/YouTubing. Seems like some people are perfectly happy with the copies & others have found the reason for the price discrepancy. Your own mileage may vary.
