its up to you i dont mind. shipping might be ridiculous though~2kg,and i dont know what itll cost to repair as i havnt seen it to diagnose problems...but as long as the windings on the transformer are ok it can be repaired.
but like i say,its up to you.
send me a pm if you want and ill send you my full name and address...i assume its a 220-240 volt model?
if choose ill open a services thread for it when it arrives.
