    My Marcato is awesome. I found it for $5 still in the box at a second hand store. Its a lot more than that new of course.

    If you are not in a hurry do check thrift stores. They turn up pretty often, usually for around $5, at least around here. (Chicago.) A lot of people bought them in the 80s and found they never used them.

    I gotta' agree with what ChicagoT stated.  I found mine unused at a garage sale and never used it.  I then sold it to a friend for less than $20.

    My 80s-vintage Marcato got much use and is still going strong. Sometimes comes in handy for flatbreads too.
