Burden Sales Surplus Center Item Detail $1.89
At this price I wonder if this would work. With a pully you might make it tuen a bit faster. It loos set up for continious duty plus 110v.
They also have one that you could step down from 30 rmp
Which would be better?
What do you guys think?
I also think its www.hagensfish.com

Both of the motors you referenced, have extremely short motor shafts,
(approximately 5/16 inch long) which unless you have access to a metal lathe, you can not connect them accurately, so that there is no wobble on the lure turner.
Even if you have access to a metal lathe, it will take you at least 4 hours to machine and tap the shaft couplers and to make the motor mount and the two necessary pulleys to either speed up, or slow down the lure turner shaft. And the foregoing assumes that you are an experienced machinist. Keep in mind that the pulleys will require accurate bearing surfaces to support the bearing.
Save yourself a lot of time and money. Buy a gearmotor with speed that you want and be done with it.
