Try here for a motor /crestmi.com.au or here www.motiondynamics.com.au I don't know what you want? I got a 12v motor from Motion Dynamics variable
speed for my faceting machine. Works well.

It could be a home made job. Normally if something is factory made, they're only too happy to put their name on it. I think you'd have to measure the circular clamp and see what's available to fill it. I don't think you'd need an extremely powerful one. If it is homemade, it may have been an old washing machine motor fitted to it.

It probably is a washing machine motor. It may even be using a remote capacitor somewhere else on the machine in its start winding. Lots of washing machines use a remote capacitor separately mounted to the motor.
