    Do old machines have any monetary value?

    My old Giotto Rocket has given up the ghost. It stopped working recently and I took it to a repairer locally here in north-east Vic and I've just been told it will cost over $1100 to repair. Which seems like a lot to spend on an old machine. If I decide to replace it with a new machine, does the old machine have any value? Does it go to the tip? Would seem tragic. It's a beautiful machine. I have a lot of affection for it. It just doesn't work.
    TIA.

    Shame to go to the tip, you're bound to find someone in this forum who will be willing to take it off your hands (for a small fee) and give it a new life by rebuilding it.. this of course depends on the overall condition it's in and how much you're willing to sell it for..

    Before you go down that path, have you thought about getting a second opinion? I'm sure one of the CS site sponsors will be able to help..

    All the best,

    How long did it last from build year? I've got a fairly old machine myself.. Did he give you a breakdown of the parts and labour for the $1100+ or just quote?
