This sturdy 2-sided chitarra pasta maker is hand made by a Pennsylvania artisan since the late 1940's, with hardwood from his grove, anchors from a local forge, and piano wire.
The wires cut 3/16" wide strands on one side, and 1/8" wide on the other side.
The center board catches the strands and slides out to remove them.
