Lightbulb Mini Wind Generator made using old floppy drive

Does someone know where else I can find stepper motor for mini windmill? Except in floppy drive, of course.
Check this out, it looks really simple but I just can not find 5.25 floppy

Yeah, I can see 5.25" being hard to find but 3.5" should still be abundant.

Red face Mini Wind Generator made using old floppy drive

i have tried to use small 3.5 inch floppy but it has very small stepper which is almost useless for this purpose. I have to go for 5.25 definitely...

I think Ray's suggestion of ebay is going to be your best bet, then.
