I reallly am jealous. We have owned three makers -- Atlas, something else (can't think of it right now) and Imperia. The latter must have been a factory mistake because the roller was so poorly milled that the pasta got torn up. When hubby went to buy a new one, he asked our local gourmet cookware store owner if he could examine it, and the thing fell apart when he tried to assemble it and examine the roller. She (store owner) was apalled (we buy from her often) and returned the entire lot. I'm glad you're having better luck. Hubby wants an Atlas, and we just haven't gotten around to ordering one.
You all should know that making pasta is a great "company" meal. We don't have kids, so are at odds and ends sometimes to figure out entertainment when families with kids visit. Children, from single digits through teens, have loved making pasta. There's something any age can do, from having a 3 year old toss the finished pasta with flour as it dries or hold the sheets of pasta while you guide it through the cutter, to helping at any other stage when they get older.
The reason we haven't replaced the pasta maker yet is that we're about to take a trip to FL to visit family and I'm pretty sure Mom has one she no longer uses.
