I have a cheap rod drying motor that works fine for its intended purpose but now that I modified it to hold a couple lures to dry the plastic gears inside broke nearly ruining a couple baits . Where can I find a motor that will take the added weight of baits, holders , and a wheel to hold them . I still will be using it to dry rod too .

Check out a rotisserie motor.
I built a lure dryer for a friend yesterday.
using one and it works great.
It is easily removed and the rpm is 5.5.

I recently purchased a rotisserie motor at Lowes. They carry a universal fit by char-broil for $20.00. It will hold a lot of lures

Mine is from a 20 buck rotisserie found in Walmart's garden dept. and works great.

You can get off cheap if you can grab a motor from a gas grill someone is tossing out. Another cheap or freebie is a motor from a broken microwave oven. There are other sources for a variety of motor such as www.surpluscenter.com or
either of these sources will have many for you to choose from.

it spins a little fast, but the motor from an ice cream maker is tough as the dickens and you can spin a lot of baits with one. if you use a dimmer switch for the on/off switch, you can slow it down to suit yourself.
