Bought these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280875300072?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
And I'd like to connect a platform to the motor (that would spin) but I don't know what such a part would be called. Any help?

The thing that connects to the spinning part of the motor is the shaft.

The two common names are, shaft and rotor.
ALT: The thingy that sticks out of the motor and can attach things to.
