Rolling Mill is in great condition, always greased as well as the rollers.
Some rollers may need a KEY WAY repair as this can be done at a machine shop whereas they weld a piece of steel then grind it down to make the shape of the groove so, the key can catch the roller to spin it.
You can still use the rollers although for some, you may need to turn the other direction in order for it to spin.
All grooves on the rollers are inprestine condition.
Soft copper, silver, zinc & tin were only used, nothing heavy.
The covers are off for a reason, you can put them back on although for each time you want to replace rollers, you must remove both covers everytime so, it's best to leave them off especially for a quicker change.
If you notice a waxy substance on the rollers & in the roller grooves, it's just grease.
