Default Motor to drive platter in DIY Record Cleaning Machine

Looking for recommendations for an AC or DC high torque/low RPM motor for my RCM. It will mount under the platter and drive the inside lip of the platter via a rubber idler wheel.

Click the image to open in full size.

It must be fairly small and have an easy way to mount it to the 1/4" thick top plate that is made of hardboard.

Thanks in advance for the recommendations!

A gearmotor from a surplus dealer, if you need more torque.
Or, a cordless drill... plenty of those at thrift stores. Power Wheels car motor, maybe.

Here's what I ended up getting:

Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is New Arrival 12V 100RPM High Powerful Torque Gear Box DC Gear Motor Micro parking lock TS-37B555

Now I'll need to figure out the power supply but that should be to difficult.

If you wanted your machine to operate both forward and backwards, (indescrimately) you could steal the design from "Strathearn Audio" record decks of the 1970's.
