Extractor Motor Ideas Please

I need a new motor for my extractor the previous motor was a washing machine motor (a bit of a Heath Robinson affair) but it worked health and safety would have a fit if they saw it!!
I do not want to go to the expense of a full conversion via Thornes or Maisemores £300 all in.
Any shaft and bearing conversions I can do my self but Im having trouble sourcing a suitable motor and speed controller it can be direct or belt drive
any suggestions!!!

Gareth or Hawkeye are two of a few who might come up with answers to your problem.

Single phase industrial electric motors  and controllers are available new from places such as Machine Mart: http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/search/filter/motor/type/any/page/1

Most places that do rewinds will often have suitable reconditioned motors on the shelf, andwill be able to do controllers, etc.

A quick look on youtube also indicates that Vari speed electric pistol drills will also do the job, but I would probably go for a vari speed woodworking router; one that that takes 1/2 inch bits.

What RPM and Wattage, do you require? as there plenty of other options out there

Have you considered the motor, controller and battery from one of these electric bikes: 0-100rpm, 250 watt, 12 volt

There are plenty of them now appearing on the secondhand market now.
