Hi all

My pasta machine seems to be grating itself (metal on metal)
where the barrels meet the frame and it is leaving nasty
black stuff on the edge of the sheet

It says I cant wet it on the instructions? Its a "ethos"
machine, cost 30euro (about 30bucks)

Any thoughts? Cheapo machine?

Cheers

Niall

Have you tried putting a drop or two of oil at the spot
where the metal is rubbing? I would suggest either olive oil
or mineral oil. After you do that, try running a scrap piece
of pasta dough through it a couple of times to absorb the
remnants of the metal filings and black yuckies. Then be
sure to throw that piece of dough away. LOL That should take
care of your problem. If not, you may need to contact the
manufacturer.
