    It is a square dial, motor generator, DC drive, most likely a 3 hp DC motor. I have two of these and mine are from 1951. The date should be on the nameplate.
    " needs motor repair" gives no description of what is needed. It might be repairable or the motor generator may be in bad shape.

    If you look at the listing, one of the photos is of the buildplate. Serial #28905, built in Sept. 1946...

    Externally good condition, what the hell does that mean? Paint? Not rusty?

    I'm sure the machine selling business has a good idea what's wrong.

    Yes, I have looked at this.

    If I was in the market I'd roll the dice on the "motor needs work" issue.

    Seems like pretty well equipped and not a half bad price

    The spindle appears to have a really bad bend at the chuck end. It's like 90 degrees...

    Looks as if he bought or recycled a D1-3 mounting plate for a new flat back chuck. Then couldn't "get there from here" as to turning the sumbich 'in situ" to fit the chuck's back recess!

    "Has motor problems" is a more exalted exit-ramp cop-out than "I hadn't a klew WTF to do next?".

    10EE might be a good deal more reliable an investment than its current minder.

    They do that. A lot.
