Doing a quick search reveals no one has posted info on this motor. Supposedly is it's a knock off or replacement for the etek.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/12-24-V-DC-VIB-Motor-Etek-MT-Pattern-Permanent-Magnet_W0QQitemZ300271686615QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item300271686615&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1215|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Is selling these with the following info "CAUTION BIDDERS! SPECIAL BUILD TYPE -The rotors in these units where NEVER balanced since they were built for low-speed wind power and high-speed vibrator applications SO these units WILL vibrate a litte bit. These rotors were hand built by us here in the USA as a replacement of the original lower yield design . "..
