old timer Roys and Wilcox
« on: March 19, 2018, 06:32:20 PM »
Roys and Wilcox merged with Peck to form Peck Stowe and Wilcox in 1870

 So  it's at least 150 years old.

I guess that was hiding in a corner for a while. Although a bead roller is something I don't have I wouldn't mind having one just in case
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

Very nice,  are the dies removable on this as on the later ones?

   they are still wanted, I put 2 of them on craigslist this past summer and they sold in 2 days, two guys came together
    andalso asked about other kinds. I had them for years and never played with them.

yes dies come off, but they are much smaller that today's dies.

and yes bead rollers are very popular these days, the blacksmith/tinsmith rage is behind it I think
