    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.
