At the secret pasta research lab....

Some pasta!

Then there's the Spagley angle!

Basic 'A5' plywood box to contain the spaghetti.

Which was too long, so 12 packets were taped together and sawn in half

The box lined with paper and the pasta installed.

Then to set the levels the whole lot was belt sanded (make a note in your recipe book that 100 grit is good on pasta)

Then (without dropping all the spaghetti out) shove your 'pasta-pin-profile-gauge' on top pf a conrod , or other interesting article, and coat the underside with loads of PVA to stop the pins from settling back down when you are not looking.
