I gave my hand crank away when someone bought me an electric pasta maker. I really prefer the hand crank one and will probably buy myself another one.

I have a hand crank, but often if making linguine or fettucini, I just lightly roll and cut by hand..Then on a pan with parchment paper and rice flour I nest the fresh pasta, quick freeze some for the following week and keep out that evening portion for dinner. my DH is use to walking into the kitchen draped in hanging pasta, say's it's like dodging his mom's wash on the laundry line I never buy, what is called fresh in the grocery stores, as I find after sitting there Lord knows how long in those packages the pasta strands want to stick together, I HATE, standing there, pulling apart individual strands..so I make my own.

I made a most magnificent ravioli last christmas. I used a roasted carrot mash in the dough, and made the filling with roasted carrots and mascarpone cheese. It was amazing.

probably about an hour. But, do it with someone you love, and have some wine at the same time. It's more of an event rather than a chore.

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. I guess about an hour is about right although I have never timed it myself. By the way my hand crank is now redundant as my new kitchen has no overhand on the work surface to attach it to. Just ordered the attachment for my kitchenAid.
