When it's time to say goodbye....
« on: October 11, 2017, 11:46:12 AM »
Hi All,

My Baby Twin is being replaced this week.  It half works (steams, but isn't pulling shots) and has some annoying "ghost touch" behaviors with the touch panel that I'm told is not replaceable.  Any advice on what to do with it?  eBay? Recycle it?  I feel like I can't donate a half-working machine to charity in good conscience. 

Thanks,

--Brian

Some charities use such stuff to give their employees jobs to do. 
And if they can't use it, they can then recycle it.  I'd give them the chance.

If recouping some of the money spent for the new gear is important, you can take the Baby Twin apart and sell the working parts.
