Where to find a 2 HP Electric Motor? Answered

I am looking to build a belt grinder.  Anyone know where I could salvage a 2 HP Electric Motor?  I initially thought treadmill as you can get them next to nothing on kijiji but depending on if its AC or DC I guess you need a bunch of other things to go along with it.

Treadmills are great sources, just make sure you get the driver card that comes with it.

2HP motors can be had from Harbor Freight in an emergency....

1. No idea where you live.

2. Any machine / DIY store should carry small HP motors. Google may be your best helper.

2 Hp is quite powerful for a belt grinder mine has around a 1/4 Hp motor.
