Desperate Plea For Pasta Machine Handle

Post by Artisan » Fri, 31 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Oh, HELP!  Ever since I lost my pasta machine handle a year ago, I've been
borrowing the handle from my girlfriends' machine.  Now she had the audacity to
move out of town and take her handle with her!  

I've been gone from the on-line polyclay community for awhile; did we ever find
a source for replacement handles?  (I've got an Atlas, if it matters).

Ever grateful,
Mandy :-)

Ahem...at the risk of being monotonous...

Wouldn't this just be the perfect time to invest in a pasta machine motor?  If
you're not in love with it within a week, return it!  (No I don't work for
them...just love them!! )

I lost my Atlas handle.  After 2 weeks I finally bit the bullet and bought a whole
'nuther machine, knowing full well what would happen.   Well, of course I found
the handle for the other one, but it took a year.  And I *swear* I moved that
couch...   But that is ONE thing I don't have to worry about being without unless
I get really addled and if that happens I'll probably start *eating* the clay
anyway and it won't matter.

I lost my handle not too long ago (I found it a few days later) & my 7 yr. old
son stuck a pair of scissors into the hole that the handle goes in and turned
it like a handle. To my surprise, it worked!

Donna -

I've seen you post about this motor several times now, and it sounds
like a great idea. Where'd you get one, and is there any info for it
online?

Thanks,
Julia

Julia,
I ordered my pasta motor from http://www.appliances.com.  It was $65 plus $5
shipping, I think.

Yup, Randi!  The best $70 me and my buddies who have 'em ever spent!  Julia, if
you don't love it, I'll give up my pickles and sour cream for a week! :>

Thanks!

When I first thought about it, I figured why spend $65 just to save a
little effort. Then I started thinking about having two hab\nds free to
actually hold the clay... being able to put the pasta machine further
back in my work are freeing up egde space... no more Fimo crumbs on the
carpet... and best of all never having to crank it to the table again
(especially since the plastic thing that turns the clamp is split). This
definitely sounds worth the money.

I get more great ideas from this place. :)

Julia,
I initially felt like you about the pasta machine motor.  Someone even demo'ed
one at a guild meeting, and I couldn't see the big deal.  
The clincher in making my decision (which was already likely due to Donna's 1st
long post) was when she said that even for $200 it was worth it.  

She was right!
