One motor that was mentioned some time ago is available through C and H
Sales Company, 1-800-325-9465.  I bought this motor, which is a Carter 1
H.P., 0-10,000 RPM unit for $50.00.  There stock number is DCM9401.   It is
actually a universal motor so you can run it on either AC or DC.  I use it
in my rotary gap with great success on DC.  It's full load current draw is
10 amps.
