Default Puff pastry machine

Is there such a thing as a machine that makes puff pastry from
scratch. As in, put in the ingredients, wait, return to find ready to
use puff pastry.

I've done a bit of search on the internet and have only found factory
scale machines for doing it, nothing suitable for the home consumer.

I do understand that the process of creating puff pastry is more
complicated than, say, breadmaking. But in our modern world people
have invented all sorts of useful machines. So I thought it worth
asking the question.

Don't really think you will find anything like this. Problem is, most
puff pastry is made by folding in several layers of butter or
shortening, sometimes a little of both. The folding in process is a
little hard to duplicate and it requires resting in the cooler between
folds. There was a quick puff pastry I did in one of my classes. It
was similar to a pie dough, but with really big chunks of the
shortening left. Can't get to the formula at the moment. Most of my
notes are still packed away after moving.

It may be time consuming, but it's really quite easy, and not at all
complicated. I think you should try to make some yourself!
