    Have you tried putting several layers of paper towel between the
    back side of the sterling and the roller, might push the metal into
    the depression on the steel. The limitation of the HP of the mill 
    contribute to the struggle, as I have a 3HP power mill. The 3 HP mill
    used with corrugated cardboard gives me a texture I am very happy
    with, I use it a lot. Could not do it with a hand mill, tried,
