Default Advice on building a turntable motor

I am looking at building a turntable and i am looking for any advice you might be able to give me on building the motor drive unit.

I have a small workshop with a CNC router, lathe etc and I am quite confident in building the platform, turnable, motor housing etc but I fall down on the electronics side of things.

Where might I be able to source a reasonably priced motor preferably in Australia and is there a suitable speed controller kit that I could make for it?

Thanks for any help

Well here is as good as it gets. Look up in analogue section at DIY, the SG4 diy 4 phase sinewave generator for turntable motor drive. You will be at the top of the game.

One extra tip if you are going belt/tape/string drive make the platter heavy 30lbs and up should do the trick.

Enjoy the ride
