Where to find motor replacement?

(1/4) > >>

eTimesV:
I picked up a small, used Inland DB-100 diamond-bladed bandsaw to cut glass for ~$20.  The motor unfortunately overheated and literally blew up with a poof and puff of smoke.  The replacement  motor seems extraordinarily expensive ($130) for what it is and in any case out of my budget:

Can anyone suggest where I might find a suitable replacement?  There is a small custom motor controller board inside, not sure how big a role that plays in finding a 100% exact match motor.
It has brushes (see pic) but says 240AC on the name plate so I guess it's an AC and not a DC motor?
I would think I should be able to find a little motor like this for maybe $20-30.

Looks like the shaft is 8mm and sticks out ~23.5mm. Motor diameter ~76mm, length 107.5mm.

Name plate on motor:
Model IPPM9801-240
Volts 240AC
RPM 3000
Amps 0.5
Torque 0.213Nm
No. 32CY990502-265
Made in China

Googling "IPPM9801 motor" didn't turn up much. If I do an image search there's nothing at all, a completely empty Google results page. I tried variations thereof like with/without "-240".  Also no luck searching on Alibaba or Aliexpress.  Also searched IPPM9501 and IPPM9301 (two possible variations when you look at the image of the name plate where one digit is overwritten by hand) and adding the search hint "motor" or not, nada.  I also tried searching based on the specs and didn't find much.  It's a little strange to come up so empty.  This comes close in some respects

but is too small and I'm not sure if it works with 240VAC and anyway I've never been able to order from Alibaba without being asked to pay $70-100 shipping.
  So, I thought I'd ask for advice here.

DTJ:
Not a direct replacement but looking at that motor I'd consider replacing it with a treadmill motor and controller.

I often see them either thrown out on the verge or being given away on facebook.

An added advantage would be variable speed.

eTimesV:
Thanks for the suggestion.  I rarely see those being sold or disposed of where I am but I was thinking if I really can't find the equivalent to maybe try something like 
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005006358641757.html but now that I look I see shipping makes that too expensive too, and I'd have to ditch the existing housing and design/print something new which I'd rather avoid if I can.

The existing motor is variable speed, at least with the attached controller/pot.

eTimesV:
Given the lack of replies I feel like maybe I'm posting in the wrong forum.  Anyone know of a better one?  I can think of one, practicalmachinist, which I will try next but any other suggestions?

I think it's more astonishment over "cheepness" here.
You made a steal with 20 Euro bandsaw, and now you're complaining about a 130 Euro motor? If it's that bad, throw the whole thing in the trash.

Concerning Practical Machinist: forget it. Anything China and you're out faster than you came in.
