Hi,
Mondays is trash day in my neighborhood, that also includes larger trash items. One of my neighbors threw away DYSON Vacuum cleaner attachments.
The one that drew my attention was the Powered Upholstery Cleaner attachment. I took it home and dismantled it and voila out came a perfect 16 Volt E Motor. and as a bonus a belt drive system.
here are the pictures:

Now the dimensions:
Motor 16 VOLTS, Diameter: 27 MM, Length: 33 MM. Shaft Diameter: 2MM
Small drive wheel diameter: 5MM, Large Wheel Diameter:22MM Shaft of Large Wheel: 4MM
Distance between wheels about 42 MM

I tested the motor, it runs great at different speeds. It looks like a quality motor ready for anything......
happy hunting
Chris

CD drives, either for music or computer have small low power can motors, good for us. Unfortunately CD drives are going the way of steam locomotives, plus the more recent computer CD drive motors are not DC (2 wires) but more like stepper motors (4 wires) and would require drive electronics.
