Often the motor is mounted on a "Resilient base" which means it has isolation
or resilient rings between motor mounting hubs and base to absorb vibration and
noise. All that is needed to rotate the motor in its "cradle" is to just loosen
two screws. Trivial.
Often the disk is mounted on a hub or arbor which is "keyed" to the motor shaft.
It would take some fancy design/machine work to make the disk adjustable. There
is no readily available "off the shelf" solution.

You won't find many sheep here. Perhaps a few goats.
