All you need from a pasta machine,
This review is from: Imperia Italian Double Cutter Pasta Machine (Kitchen & Home)
This is really sturdy, the rollers run smoothly - it's fab! What's worth knowing is that the tagliatelle cutter (rolled to no4 thickness) produces 2mm ribbons just like the fresh spaghetti you get in supermarkets and the fettucine cutter (also rolled to no4) is like the fresh tagliatelle.

You can't actually make spaghetti with this machine. Spaghetti is flour and water factory-made pasta that is made by forcing the dough through a bronze die. It's not easy to make this kind of pasta at home. What you can make is tonnarelli which has a square cross section, so you roll it to the same thickness as the width of the thin cutter. If you roll it thinner then you get tagliolini from the thin cutters and fettucine from the broad cutters, not tagliatelle. Tagliatelle is slightly wider (1/4 inch) and you have to cut that by hand with a knife as well as ever other shape.
