Has anyone ever owned and/or used a vintage Emide Pasta Maker No. 5? (circa 1950's)

Hi Everyone,

Though I have yet to try making pasta at all (this is my project this summer), I am considering buying one second hand to add to my vintage pasta making tools and don't know if they work well or are worth buying.

Apparently they are cast iron with bronze rollers (3 of them) and they clamp to the counter. The only colour that I've seen them in is Sky Blue with white accent (on top) and they have a Red Wooden Handle.

I believe they are circa the 1950's or 1960's and were made in Germany.

Any info would be appreciated.

If they were duds and hard to handle I will pass, but if they lasted for centuries (or at least decades) and were well used, I will consider it.

Thanks,

FoodNerdGrrl

PS - Uncle Morty, if you are reading this, have you ever seen and or used one of these? Also I have yet to make some pasta with my pastamatic (see other blog) but thanks for all of your comments.

Also, how about you Catalex? :)
