I use this Imperia pasta maker quite often
I purchased this Imperia pasta maker earlier this summer and have used it quite a bit. I had no trouble assembling it. I usually roll it to a #5 thickness and then cut the noodles. Mine did not come with a brush.
I can recommend this machine to anyone wanting to make pasta. Oh, and if you are thinking about getting a motor for it, don't - it cranks so easily that it would be a waste of money.
