I am quite impressed with your web site, however I am not a commercial interest. My grandmother handed down her pasta machine to me (the hand crank type that she brought over from the old country), as did my godmother. As a teen-ager (I am now 41) I would make the pasta every Sunday morning for our family's afternoon gathering. I have moved several times and ended up in Hawaii. I lived on the ocean for the first two years and my one machine (the one that was out on display, but never used). The problem I have is that one of the machines is badly rusted from the sea water mist and I have not been able to locate the handle and the vice that secures the machine to the table.
Question: Any chance that you have a lead as to where I can locate these parts?
Also any ideas on how to clean the rust from the machine, or where it can be sent to be put back into usable condition?
