    Hard to advise you.
    Second hand rolling mills can be on sale for health or retirement reasons and be a good bargain, or a real turkey if the rollers are pitted or rusty, or seriously mis-alighned. They can also have missing cogs. Best to take a knowledgeable friend to inspect it and some metal to roll before buying.
    New mills are more reliable if bought from a respected source, but can be pricey, with the additional burden of VAT. Dennis.

    There are a lot of people who buy budget rolling mills and they seem to have lasted well. It depends very much on what you want it for in relation to spend. Is it going to be a workhorse or just for occasional use?
