Roller settings/thicknesses for home made pasta

lunchslut | Nov 3, 2009 09:37 PM

I just bought a basic rolling pasta machine (Mercato) with roller cutters for tagliatelle and fettuccine, spaghetti, and taglioni. Since there are only two sets of cutters and the tagliatelle and fetuccine are similar in shape and width, I am assuming that the thicknesses of the pastas are the main differentiators between the types. Are there standard thicknesses for these pastas and where can I find them?

A google search and the manufacturer web site have been fruitless so far...
