broken garbage disposal

Dearest Mr. Love The Plumming Guy:

Our garbage disposal is a wee bit broken after it tried to ingest our only metalic tea-strainer-thingy. It's subsequent indegestion is the cause of general dis-satisfaction in the kitchen area.

When we throw the on-switch the poor bugger just says a quite "rrrrrrrr", the kind of r's sung by a solitaire baby bee, anonymous among the periwinckles. The kind of r's that says "yes, I AM TOO an electric just wait 'till I grow up big and strong like my daddy...he says I'm going to be a big zapper some day, biggest current in the whole wall". Well, you get the picture, eh?

So, naturally we pushed the little button at the bottom of the change.

The cheapest plummer we could find said it would be $50 just to come and GIVE the estimate!

What is your advise for our current situation? Some say it would be cheaper to replace it..I'd have to buy some tools, but I figure I could manage. PLEASE HELP.

Thank you,
