That makes it easy-
Find a flea market with a AC power outlet and find a machine the seller
will let you test. If the seller won't let you test it, pass it by. Take
along a record known to play well and isn't rare.
There's all kinds of them around Syracuse, N.Y. - you should be able
to find one easily in San Francisco. Junque shops will probably have a
machine or 2 around that a little TLC will work wonders with..
Or the always present E BAY.

Are they looking for "archival quality" or just something for pleasure.
they're looking for archival quality, they'll have to open their pocket
books. But if they just want anything that plays all three speeds,
are hundreds of thousands of older units that can be retrofitted with a
quality cartridge and offer decent performance.
