If you have a junk player you can probably take the spindle motor out and use it as a replacement. Make sure the platter is the same height. "That's the plastic disc mounted on the shaft of the motor.

You'll also need a screwdriver for those 2 very small screws that hold the motor in place and a soldering iron. Make sure you solder the red & black wires back in the right places otherwise the motor will run backwards.
