As far as I can see from the low resolution pictures, there appear to be no obvious cracks or breaks, but the rubber insulator may have hardened with age.

The HMV130 would be a good starter machine, but what does the seller mean by "the needle has a tendency to get stuck"? If the machine causes the record to stick during play, there is a problem.


That would suggest there is a problem with the tone arm not moving freely.

Not being familiar with HMV machines, I'm not certain how easy (or difficult) this is to repair.
