My vote is for sending it back. Even on a cheap machine, for that kind of damage in a webbed area, it took on a big hit. If it did that to the webbed area, think of the tweaking that took place throughout that machine. And if it were mine, I would be mad at myself for keeping it and then every time something didn't come out of it right, you would always wonder and I would beat myself up about it. You spent the money to get a quality machine, now send this one back and get another that hasn't been in a train wreck.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
