    I finally did it :(

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    In all my experiments and stuff I finally killed my poor little Sunbeam $99 special,
    It had a very fruitful life in our house, gave us coffee back in the days when we thought the beans we bought and put thru the spice grinder were not too bad.
    Then graduated to fresher beans and in the time Ive joined CS, put the little bugger thru everything, 2 different grinder and it put its lil heart into it and tried to do what I asked of it, no matter how odd.
    But tonight, sadly, it gave in, never to espress anything no more.
    We are still doing the autopsy and await the findings, but the "lil machine that tried" shall find itself its final resting place, steam spout upturned in respectful silence, to be converted to a garden ornament, to spout water from its steam spout.
    Its going to be a painful waiting till I can go get a new one :(
    So next time you use your machine, please raise your pf for sunnies last espress.
    Thanks for reading

    details at this stage are sketchy, grinder and sunnie were at play in the garage, kidlettes had a accident (turns out all was ok) by time we got back to playroom, sunnie wasnt speaking anymore. Yes we were trying to "push him" a little and we think we blew something inside, probably a valve or cutout. But in its 3 year short lifespan it served us well,
    at least there is a plus side note, its now time for Silvia to have her reign and I will be calling a sponsor tomorrow on advice from the good lady of the ministry of finance.
    I mean we didnt mean to push it , really, honest!

    High quality (and equally priced) German made powertools from when I was working interior fitout and joinery. They makea track saw witha slide thats hyper accurate, in a way you could say the BMW of power tools, basically not your bunnings special.
    The La Cimbali or Expobar on roids tools perhaps?
