Where can I find a powerful motor for my art project?

Asked by waffles (149 points ) August 21st, 2011

Think of a fan, same speed but more powerful. I need a spinning armature to which I can attach spokes and at the end of the spokes, a series of small sculptures.

Do you know of a similar structure that I can purchase? (as long as it has on/of switch, plug) Or, do you have any suggestions of how to build one? (using DC motor perhaps?)

Edmund Scientific Motors might also be a place to look. They have slow speed motors.

Radio Shack? Fry’s?
