    Obviously I'm new here, but I have exhausted all other resources, and thought I could use a little help from the pros.

    I need a comparable motor (as these cost 250$ from the manufacturer) to the specs. It can be just comparable, but the shaft does need to be the same width.

    I'm trying to hit under $75, but am looking for a large quantity. Can anyone point to where I should START looking?

    Thanks for any help everyone!

    I just quickly looked at the web site of a very good motor company we have here in Switzerland: Maxon (I think they made motors for space robots etc.)
    Anyway, their prices are good and the quality too.
    Look at this page.
    If you choose 12W versions, you see many different motors, most of them very high speed. I just looked at the fist in the list (339277). It's shaft is 4mm, it is a brushless (!) super compact type and cost CHF 62 (approx. $65) for single pieces. Price at 20 pieces= CHF49.90
    (the same motor from the US site)
