The hard part seems to be that one of you have a computer to shop.
Obviously you have.
A few years ago I remember many on the woodturning group (the ng & WC)
using these guys for motors and VF drives to replace lathe motors.
Never heard anything but good about them:
Also, check out for some really nice motors (and mostly pricey!):
There's old faithful, but not necessarily the cheapest either:
If you want a nice motor, you can also get a rebuilt motor. If you
start out with a good motor (NOT NOT Chiawanese stuff) you can rebuild
many motors several times if the windings stay intact. In fact some
are made to be "serviced".
When I was doing a lot of commercial work I was on a building downtown
and some guys were pulling the biggest electric motor I had ever seen
(it was a motor for a huge chiller unit) with a small lift. They were
replacing it with another that looked just like it that came from the
building storage room.
It had a brass plate wired on it showing the dates of rebuild. The
first entry stamped on the plate - 1931 !!
If you can get a Leeson, Baldor, WEG, or some of the other brands that
are out there that have been rebuilt by a qualified shop, you should
be in business for about 1/2 price the cost of new.
When they break, most of the smaller motors that come from China are
made to be sold for scrap. Don't take a rebuilt Chinese motor unless
you know what you are doing.
As always, just my 0.02.
