    What to do with an old Sunbeam EM4800?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi al - apologies if this has been raised and answered elsewhere - I did several searches but nothing turned up.
    Today I took delivery of my new 2009 Rancilio Miss Silvia which Im very exciting about and am already practicing making better coffee with *;D. However Im unsure what I can do to dispose of my old Sunbeam EM4800 machine (aside from throwing it in the bin) *:-??
    The EM4800 is still in reasonable working order but has a few small issues that would require attention by someone with the patience to get it going properly. (It seems to leak water with the coffee and I have replaced the seal to try and fix this with no luck).
    Is there perhaps anyone out there looking for a machine free to a good home for use as parts? Or is there someone out there who refurbishes and resells these machines? Or should I bite the bullet and throw the machine in the bin?

    I have one already, but to answer a tech question for whoever gets the machine, the fault is most likely with the portafilter retainer thingy.
    It develops a crack which opens up when the basket pressurizes and the seal leaks.
    $33 from a sunbeam repairer.

    Hey, if youre thinking of junking your machine, maybe I can use the power supply board from it? I have an EM5800 which has blown the relay on that board [see http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1253023418...]

    Please PM me if thats something youd consider...
