Shark Free Spacer
Some years ago Dan Cormier came up with the great idea of the Shark that would keep Skinner blends tidy. This works great unless you have taken the fenders off your pasta machine to make it easier to clean.
My friend Lawrence passed on one answer to the problem. You simply put a stack on magnets on the rollers to keep the blend in place. You can add or remove magnets to adjust the width. I am not sure who can up with this idea, perhaps it was Lawrence himself, but it is well worth try. Lawrence was using bigger magnets than I have shown here but this these raw earth magnets were what I had on hand.
