Hey guys, my first forum post here and a question which came up in a conversation today about hand rolling pasta.
With my giant knobly hands and soft tender palms, I have some issues with strenuous and prolonged work with my ancient french rolling pin, and with using standard sized rolling pins with handles. The french style rolling pin is just plain uncomfortable, and the handles on the handle style rolling pins are far too close to the work surface for the previously mentioned knobly hands to clear.
So onto my quandary. I have been looking for a kit which allows for the handles to spin independently from the rolling surface. I know they exist, as I have seen similarly finished rolling pins at our local christmas art market. I was quite impressed with their movement (and extravagant price), however I have failed to find a kit online or through searching through this website.
Further to this point, I would not be adverse to creating a kit for myself out of hardware available at the big box store, if plans for such a thing exist somewhere.
