Cleaning My Pasta Machine

I knew it was time to clean my pasta machine when I saw this, a smear of purple on my turquoise pendant.
I was able to sand the purple off, but it was a lesson learned. Taking apart a pasta machine is the easy part, you can see the whole process in pictures here.
I know that it is hard to see, but if you look closely you'll see the layers of clay on my scrapers. This was easily wiped off and my machine was clean! Putting it back together was a little difficult, but eventually I got it and now my machine is good as new. I can't wait to make some more mokume gane.
