It looks like it came out of a cordless drill which is what I suggested you use in the other thread.

Hi, yes I've tried looking ebay but as I've said electrics is not my thing. Amps wattage etc is over my head. I have a power supply that can supply upto 30volts but that's all I know. I've been told by others it's ok but on here that it's not, I've been told I needed a torque motor but the hi torque one I've is no good.
Now you have given an idea of sizes I need I can look again cheers.

Been hunting ebay again. Some good looking stuff there pj but unfortunately 110v no good I'm a Brit, we are 240v mains.
If looked at some power tool motors as toolmon suggested and they do look better than I expected.
I've come up with this as a starting point it says for power tools in the description.
Any reason not to go for something like this?
Also could I power it from my power supply or one similar, if so what specs are needed. The more torgue from a small motor the better is my understanding.

DC 18V 18000RPM 5mm Dia Shaft Cylinder 2 Pin Terminals Electric DC Motor | eBay

11500-18000 RPM would be way too fast for that. You want something in the 3000ish range.

Looking at your other thread you had posted a RC motor starter. It seams like that might be something that could work.

Now that's a strange answer Tolyn, about the rc starter, a couple of members here have already that the stuff I have is no good at all.

I'll start looking for 3000rpm motor.
Cheers, at least you have given me a starting figure.

Off topic question: in your photo, how is the drill used? Do you have to build some sort of slide table to feed towards the drill chuck?

That's a good point. I suppose yes a slide table would be a plan then I could maybe use it as some sort of mill. My original thought was to use it to hold grinding bits or small sanding disc. But 2D moveable table vise sure sounds good.

With the "right" motor I suppose it's all down to choice what it's built for.

The only info I found on one of them was it was an ac/dc motor from a company that had gone out of business, and I'm guessing it was an American post.

One of these could make good use of the chuck side it.

Like I've said I have no use for it yet, it's a hobby build to see what turns out.
Just need to find a suitable motor and power supply. It has to be either a 240v motor or dc motor and 240v power supply. Don't want batteries at all, unless I could could leave them in for portable use and still use a power supply in the workshop. It's just the electric side that's stopping me.

Now that you have some specs you can narrow your search. Here is one I see than might work: RS555 DC Hobby Motor - 24 V - 8000 RPM - High Torque - 555 Size Project Motor | eBay Although it is quite a bit smaller then your specs.

Another option would be to bring the specs and picture to a local motor/industrial supply shop and see if they can find you a motor that will work.

Yes I think that one will be physically smaller, but again it's an option. I have got local guy looking into the specs for me. At least I'm heading in the right direction now.
Cheers.
