    Not powerful enough and won't work on regular AC power.

    Find an old treadmill that is being thrown out. Use that motor and other parts to get sorted.

    @marc.collin 1/8" hp is not going to cut it. You need at least a 1/2hp if not a full HP depending on if you want to spin two tanks vs. one and how big they are

    Try searching for BLDC motors with variable speed control.

    i did my tumbler with a DC motor 50 rpm ,and a 220V AC input/12V DC output from a PC computer.
    My tank is an 15 liters steel, for personal use, it´s OK for me. You don´t need so much power, but torque.
