bad bearings, walk way unless you really want a project to keep you busy.
The rest can be dealt with but motor bearings is major work. Even for free unless you have a grinder just like it and you need a few parts to fix your GOOD grinder. YMMV!

No I think it is the bearings that are above motor, there are 2, the motor sounds fine.   It is just OLD!!!

I would not want to sink more than $300 into the entire project (including the cost of a new set of burrs).  SM90s are fine, but very low on my list of used 6xmm commercial grinders.  Everything about them is OK, and for $300 and some lost counter space they are a good alternative to a Baratza, as long as you single dose.  Still, if you can put a bit more money or a bit more time into finding an SJ or K6, I think that would be a better bet.
