Link for Metal Clay and Rolling Mill texture Sheets

It was a random purely coincidental discovery...

https://www.etsy.com/shop/rollingmillresource

They sell texture sheets for the rolling mill and metal clay along with templates.
They even has instructions for using the sheets with metal clay!

They have pre-made textures for potters too.  Some are so sweet I get tempted to purchase them, but refrain.  I believe it is difficult to create  a personal style when you buy these mass produced products.  I feel the same way with gallery bezels available as soon as you use them it boxes your work to look a certain way.

I can be a visual snob at times.

I agree Helene.  Though I have found that having some mass produced textures helps in certain circumstances.
That said I've also been creating a lot of textures of my own using the styrofoam left over from buying meat at the store.  I run it through the dishwasher to be sure it is clean and then using a variety of tools I make a texture plate.  It's then usable for both polymer clay and metal clay and I just clean it using mild soap and water between uses.

http://www.mkmpotterytools.com/ These guys  have some wonderful stamps that would look good for metal clay but like Helene says sometimes the use of these off the shelf patters is what separates the gifted artist from the also ran. That is one of the things that I find so great about the really old Indian silver work was they made their own stamps by hand and not with laser cut precision as they are now made by the dozen for every Tom, Dick and Harrietta. Mass produced tooling kinda takes the art out of handcrafted art work.
