Here are the steps for assembling the pasta press:

  1. Rotate the cutter away from the housing base so that the auger may be inserted (the auger looks like a drill bit). Then, insert the auger into the housing base, cross-tab first. It should settle completely inside the housing. how to assemble the pasta press step 1
