The guy won't ship and something has gone wrong with the main spring (?), it won't crank and the turntable won't turn.
Motor needs work, that's for certain.

Neat! An external disc machine "in the wild" that isn't close to OR over $1,000..... :D

I would carry cash and "make an offer"..... ;) I bet it would be coming home with me. Good luck to anybody close by. Good find!

Zooming in on the grain... probably a BNW, not a BNWM.

Some veneer issues on the motor board, rather distressed finish, and motor problems. Not an absolute steal, but fair enough.
