Several years ago, the manufacturers of these fine Italian pasta machines replaced the metal scraper blades,
which keep the clay from wrapping around the rollers, with
a white rubber tipped blade.  

This has made it difficult to use Atlas machines with the white tipped blades for clay.

To solve this problem, we developed,  and offer to the polymer clay world,  replacement metal blades in
our modification process to make your claying easier.

We modify both Atlas 150's & 180's to make the scraper blades removable to clean off accumulated clay
that has been contaminating your work.   No more need to take your entire machine apart.  No tools

You will be able to unscrew a small thumb nut on each blade, remove it, wipe it clean with a paper towel,
reinsert and continue claying.   
We highly recommend using only a paper towel, plus some alcohol if
needed, and no tools that scratch or bend the blades!!

Please let us know if you want fenders on, to use with Dan Cormier's shA.R.K.

Frequently asked:  1.modifying pasta machines and 2. international shipping:

1. We occasionally get asked If it is possible to just send someone the
modified scraper blades plus instructions how to modify your own machine.
That is not possible. Our modification process involves completely taking the
Atlas pasta machine apart, then performing various metallurgical steps, plus
adding hand-fabricated/machined parts, to interior components of the pasta

2. Our modified machines have shipped internationally for many years, to
every continent.   To keep the international postage price down, one option is
to order two machines, allowing two international clayers to share the
shipping costs.  Please email me for current shipping prices.

Fuer Interessenten in Uebersee:

Diese Modifikation kann eigentlich nur mit einigem Aufwand durchgefuehrt werden, der
Werkzeug und spezielle Kenntnisse voraussetzt.  Leider ist es nicht sehr praktisch,
Nudelmaschinen von Europa nach USA und zurueck zu senden.
We can also modify the Makins Ultimate Clay Machines to make their scraper blades
removable for easy cleaning.

Because the rollers are Teflon coated, metal blades
can not be added to these machines.  
Price to modify Makins machines: $35 plus shipping.

Allow approx. 14-21 days for modifications.
