Beautiful work, Jeekins. I love my Atlas pasta maker. I've had it for about 30 years and it never fails me. My only challenge now, due to carpal tunnel and arthritis in my right hand, is turning the crank. Although, I can get an electric motor to retro-fit it. I had considered getting the pasta attachment for my KitchenAid mixer but the retro motor for the Atlas is far less expensive. Plus, I already have multiple cutters for the manual cutter. Why buy more?! There's nothing like homemade pasta. I also love making "flavored" pastas like spinach, beet, mushroom, etc.
