Default Pulley question

My Scheu (DDR) motor has stopped working and I am now looking for a replacement. I have a DIT Scheu premier (8cm platter, driven from a nylon string on the outside).

As I see it now my options are:
- DIY hifi supply complete pod or motor (Premotec) and pulley
- Maxon motor of a suitable type with controller (Maxon controller perhaps)
- Teres driver (too expensive)
- Scheu pod (also quite expensive)
- Origin live motor and supply (also quite expensive)

I would like cost effective solution and have no problem with diy work. So I think I would like to try the maxon option (they have an e-shop).

My questions are:
-Who knows where I can source a pulley for a Maxon motor?
- Is there a simple power supply option for this motor (33 and 45 rpm)? I prefer simple from the ultimate.

Have you talked to Sheu about your motor issue?

Yes, I did. The motor I have is no longer in stock and is no longer produced (former DDR). They have 2 replacement options (a good one and a even better one) but these include a pod. The cavity in the pod I have is too small for the newer (Maxon?) motor. The price all-in-all is reasonable but clearly a lot more than a diy solution.
