Instead of "revving it up," I just build the speed from the lowest setting to higher settings. I also use cheesecloth so I can use my hands to squeeze the coconut goodness out of the coconut.
But you're looking for a source, and even aside from that, you'd probably want to check and see the ratio of cream to water in canned coconut milk vs. homemade at different ratios (you don't want to end up with half the cream you need). My old standby for things like that is Amazon.com, Trader Joe's, or Whole Foods. In this case, however, the Amazon.com listings show poor reviews from people expecting a product that would separate (or else there's some supplier in Sri Lanka that is not producing coconut milk of any quality whatsoever) and the other two tend to be too expensive. As near as I can tell, a local Asian food market would probably be your best bet.
