pasta from scratch

Back in April of 1965 my parents got married and received this pasta maker as a gift. I cannot remember if they ever made pasta with it. I think I used it once while I lived under their roof. This well built machine with instructions in Italian will probably be around long after I leave this earth. It is that well built.
 On the eve of 2012, we decided to make fresh fettuccini and in reality it is quite simple to do. It is just a time consuming task.

 Drying the pasta is always a fun thing. You sometimes have to be creative as to where to hang it. A Christmas present from one of my sister in-laws proved very useful as you can see.
 wait? where is the pasta?
Oh, there it is!
Happy New Years!
