Lol you lot!

For those of you who have never taken one apart & have an imperial one let me know & I can take pics so yours doesn't come apart in a thousand pieces lol!

I'd really appreciate that Angie - I have been thinking (and worrying!) about cleaning my Imperial for a couple of weeks now. I found a tutorial online for cleaning another make, but it looks a bit different to mine.

No worries Shirley I'll take some pics & put some instructions together by the end of the week!  ;) :D

I finally got around to cleaning my pasta machine.  It was not an easy task!!!  I could have done with a couple of extra hands and the two glasses of wine I had with dinner probably didn't help, but I took a notion and at least it's done now. Here is a photo of what came out of it.  I couldn't believe how much clay was inside!!  :o

!!!!!!!!

That is really nasty. How on earth were you producing such lovely things with that inside your machine? The slightest bit of trapped clay seems to infect whatever I make!

I know Shirley, it's shocking!  I always wipe it down with a baby wipe after I've used it and in between colour changes, so I guess that's why I didn't realise it was so bad.  And there has been the odd occasion where I've trashed a piece of white clay with nice dirty streaks!  I new it needed to be cleaned!

Blimey! I daren't pull my machine apart to clean it.  I don't think it would ever go back together so I think I'll just continue to suffer the dirt streaks.
