Advice on buying a secondhand machine
we are looking at buying our first machine, not much of a budget so looking secondhand have narrowed it down to either a brevile 800ES for $50-$100 or a sunbeam EM6910 for $100- $200. I am leaning towards the 800ES i know the EM6910 is a better machine but the 800ES seems to have less problems and I'm worried about spending $150 on a machine that might stop working in a few months most of the EM6910 seem to be 3+ years old. in terms of buying a 800ES secondhand is there anything in particular i should look for? any warning sings of faulty or misuse? any questions I can ask the seller?
