that's correct.  I used stainless safety or "lock" wire - 20 thousandths.  I tried it first with 33 thou and it didn't work well at all.  the cheese wouldn't push through.

I have to give all the credit for this simple but effective idea to Bert (MightyPizzaOven). It's not elegant, and its not as cool-looking as Bill's (wheelman), but it actually works pretty well.

The cheese was poor quality, and very dry.

Pie was baked tonight in the 2stone. Bottom stone was 725 after 20 mins at 50% flame, then 100% post-launch.

Looks like you are really getting the 2-Stone dialed in. Pretty spectacular pie there John.

Thanks Craig! I used your predictive model with a 2.6% Camaldoli starter to arrive at the dough for this pie. It was spot on!

Thanks! While I was on Amazon looking at SS wire, I came across this. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00008XXVM/?tag=pizzamaking-20

I'm tempted (and lazy :-D). Looking to cut low moisture mozz (not fresh).

one of these arrived to my house today.  I'll try it and report back.  If nothing else, I'll be using it for potatoe pancakes :)

I've one of these snazzy slicer contraptions.  It works but the time saved is offset by the effort taken to clean the damn thing.  It, like the oliera and analog scale, has been relegated to the tchotchke shelf.  Romance aside, speed and efficiency favor squeeze bottles, digital accuracy and big ass sharp knives.

Thanks to everyone for the inspiration.

Here's what I have come up with...

I bought some stainless steel mesh and sandwiched it between two container lids that I cut out the center of and sealed it together with some food safe epoxy. It's not pretty, but hopefully it does the job. I will test it out in a few days!

OK, So I pushed two balls of cheese through this thing with ease.  When I was pushing straight down, it wasn't really going through but as soon as I gave the slightest bit of lateral push, it went through like butter!  Way, way easy!

Pieirdniecie Smierdziec or something like that  is what my grandfather used to say to us. I think it means farts stink in Polish.
