Default Motor Testing

I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to run a motor on the bench with a load. I need to run some power tests and just need a way to run the motor without it totally free spinning, because the manufacturer says free spinning can ruin the motor. I'm just wondering if there is a metal hockey puck shaped thing that can clamp on to the motor shaft and act as a load weight?

Buy a small prop, like they use for RC planes.

I know one of the companies makes something like this, but it's WAY overpriced.

How would you go about mounting the prop? Don't airplane motors have special shafts?
