A few on eBay from US and Canada.

Here's one in Norway asking about AU$120 before shipping: https://www.finn.no/bap/forsale/ad.html?finnkode=132209027

Hello G,
Shipping is the killer.There is a lot of them here kicking around in old units, It was released in 1960 as a forward step for the Rc 121 which I have many of and they are basically the same.
Its not a very sort after model . I would also like to find a Garrard Type A one day as it has rollers that load the records not an Arm and the spindle is a odd looking thing at 45 degrees. Only loads large hole 45s.
All the best , Pete

There's also the question of voltage and frequency. The Norwegian unit says "100/130V & 200/250V 50 cycles". American units are probably 60 cycles.

There is a 210 on eBay at the moment.

It's in Canberra.

It's NOS (Still in its original box !)

Starting bid $99.00

Can't be too many NOS record changers around, especially here in Oz. Worth a trip to Canberra to collect it, methinks:

Agreed GTC

Any NOS Garrards here in OZ would be as rare as hens teeth I suspect.

I wasn't sure what your budget is Pete. Given that it was bought in the last few seconds of the allotted time by a "sniper" (see his bidding history), my guess is the buyer would have put a fair few bucks in the bid kitty to ensure that he won it, so it could have ended up going for a lot more than $99 if he had a competitor or two bidding for it.

Well, yeah G ...money can be a issue these days, its not as easy to get hold of as it was years ago thats for sure.
But anther one will pop up sometime and even if its not working its not a issue really because I repair lots turntables and I have a good understanding of Turntables. I find them fun to Repair and mechanically they are ingenious things!! Particularly a vintage stacker!

I would love to learn how to fix vintage garrard record changers.

Are they easy for a novice to learn on Pete ?

Yes mate, I think you would enjoy it because your a music lover like me.
Turntables are good to work on,,, Although many people hate it and dont understand it. But basically if you heat the Turntable up with hot air to melt the old grease and wash it out, Then replace the grease with corrrect grease and oil in the right places .After that you set the adjustments back to their original settings and it will give years of trouble free playing.
Other common issues are the broken earth connection. Rotting rubber motor mounts from not using a rubber safe grease . The points on old units that have points need to be cleaned with metho and sometimes wet dry sand paper,,, say 1200 grit than cleaned with metho.
Idle wheels rubber goes hard and does not grip enough to spin the platter,, KY jelly will restore the softness of the rubber wheel by just soaking in it.
Old motorcycle restores trick that one ! I use too do a lot of that type of work.
Its very important that the stylus is set to its correct tracking weight which is listed in the stylus specifications of that stylus your using not what the Turntable recommend.
You just get all the original set up specification from the model number off the net.
Set all adjustments back to original specs!
Go for it ! And marvel at how clever a stacker turntable really is!

Pete

Edited,
Something else I should mention is we dont want oil in the motor,but at the bottom of the motor is a floating bearing that finds its own center for the main shaft, 2 drops of singer sewing machine oil at both ends of the shaft is all it needs.
Any wires that go to the main chassis will often need to be labeled as to not mix them up when putting the Turntable back in.
