Here's a cheaper solution that will get you the forward/reverse and on/off with a single switch. If you are considering ordering, just add this item to the shopping card:

https://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?item=11-3069&catname=electric

It's like a 3-way switch, but you can put the switch into the center position and current doesn't flow anywhere. Flip the switch up or down and you get either CW or CCW rotation of the motor.

I just wish I hadn't been brain dead. I never even though to look for the center-off switch on surpluscenter.com when I bought the mill, so even though I posted it here, I myself failed to get one.

I could have gotten the thing for $1.50 shipped to my door. My Lowe's doesn't sell switches like that, and True Value wants $8 for it.

I saw a couple for $3 on radio shack, though. I might go pick one of those up for myself, but... kicking myself for not getting one at the same time I bought the motor.

Funny!

I would have NEVER thought about it, when you posted the drawing, I was holding a switch that I had bought in High school (long time ago), so I may have paid a buck for it 30 years ago. No clue why I have stuff and it's really hard not to become a pack rat when you find something usefull that should have been lost decades ago!


Thanx again

Thanks for the wiring diagram. I was able to complete my project today with them.
One thing to note is the motor I received about a week ago had different color leads but the connections remained the same.

Yeah... the motor that most people are using was a 40 inch-pounds torque motor and the diagram I posted shows the wire colors for that motor.

That 40 inch-pound motor sold out about a month ago, but there is an identical looking motor that has 30 inch-pounds of torque for sale still.

That one has red, white, and blue wires and a smaller capacitor, but should work fine.

Any chance someone could point out the 30 inch-pounds motor? I looked on the website, but am unsure which motor is being referred to.

Thanks.. As soon as I posted I found it. Of course you beat me back here before I could edit.
