I was interested in hearing more about the Legacy Ornatmental Mills from some of the LJs that either own one of the mills or have used them. They seem pretty handy and like a lot of fun to have around if you can fork over the buckaroos. Looking forward to hearing from some of you…

Jason, You can check out my Project on a Whim blog that I have started, the first part is about the Legacy. I have projects listed that the Legacy was used on as well.

Painted bench, the reeded legs. Old world dinning table, the barley twists legs. Cherry dinning table, the reeded bun feet. I’m fixin to post another kitchen that all the small colums were done on the Legacy. There is a small corner table in one of the kitchens that I have posted that has barley twist legs.

I use mine quit a bit, I really enjoy having it. I find new things to use it for all the time. I have all the bells and whistle’s with mine, your right though it does cost some bucks, I think I’m pushing the 10,000.00 dollar mark, but like I said I use it very often and I do this for a living to.

I’d be glad to answer any questions you might have and help you out in any way I can. Your not that far away either, if you want to come up some weekend I’d be glad to show you first hand.

Very nice kitchen by the way!

Thanks for the posts and thanks for the compliment on my kitchen. Your blog on the posts and your other projects are great. I might just have to take you up on the trip to Wichita some weekend. Thanks again,

I’ve owned a Legacy mill for about 9 years now. I like it a lot and have been happy with it overall. I don’t use it every day so sometimes it takes me a little bit of head scratching to figure out the combinations of gearing, etc to make certain ropes and spirals. Mine is a massive dust generator even with the dust collection system from Legacy. But it turns out some great stuff.

I just got an email from Legacy, they will be rasing prices April 15th by 5 to 10%.

Right now they are taking 50.00 off the Revo, 100.00 off the 900 model, 200.00 off the 1200 model.

When I bought mine I called them up and told all the things I wanted and asked what kind of price they would give me, they took off quit a bit. Remember they are looking to sell, they will deal a little.

10% increase on the model 1200 would be 285.00. (ouch)

So if yout thinking about it you best decide in the next month if you want to save a little money.
