Hey, what do you mean by pasta machine?

For those who make cutters for clay and cookies may use a pasta machine -

I thought that’s what you meant. So extra thin, thin, etc. are settings on that machine?

Yes. They are usually numbers 0-9. However, depending on the brand of the pasta machine 1 can be the thinnest on PM 1 and 1 can be the thickest on PM 2.

I have a Shule pasta machine 7 is the thickest. The more popular machine Atlas is the opposite where 0 is the thickest.
