    Default Where to get reindeer motors?

    Hi All,

    I plan on modifying some standing reindeer this year and I was wondering if anyone knows where to get the weatherproof motors that come with them? I have seen plenty of places that sell they motors but none appear to be outdoor rated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have used microwave oven platter motors and then taken lots of care mounting them in plastic cases.

    That was my immediate thought, too.
