Those motors are used in a lot of older phones, Samsung mainly.

The disk ones are nice as they are somewhat robust and controllable, as well as no external moving parts to snag or break.

A good source is phone repair shops as the screen ribbon cable with attached motor is usually replaced as a unit, also old phones from charity shops sometimes have them.
