I've seen Doc Sarah mention using a rolling pin with o-rings on it to roll out larger sheets of clay to a specific thickness, and then I saw that Wilton had done the work for us.  I give you the Wilton Perfect Height Rolling Pin, which I saw while poking around in the fondant/cake decorating aisle of Michaels or AC Moore (can't recall which). 

According to the Wilton website,  you can roll out a 9" wide sheet to 1/8" thick using one of these tools. 

Sounds like it could be a handy gadget.

Donna Kato sells one too. So does CoolTools, a PMC supplier.

That could be very handy! I was just telling my sister-in-law some basic tools to get started....that might fall into that category if you weren't quite ready to commit to a pasta machine.

Make sure it is heavy. I can't tell from the picture, but a very lightweight roller would be more frustrating than helpful. I use the O rings on my Persuader (www.monakissel.com under tools) which has a lot of heft, but the solid acrylic rollers work well too. A hollow plastic roller might not hold up - so I'd examine it in person before recommending....

As someone who was into cake decorating prior to polymer clay, I do not recomend using any Wiltons tools on the clay, they are a plastic that doesn't react well to clay.  And vica versa.  Now, it was not a roller that I stole from my cake decorating stuff to use on my clay stuff, but the tool and the clay stuck to each other.
