Thanks to Eddie Pacheco

>I now have a reversible Vicmarc VL100 bench model. Eddie went above and beyond the call of duty to help me wire the switch to 1/2hp GE Motor. (I installed a set screw in the little Nova Compac chuck, so it will stay put in reverse, too. Slowest speed is 682rpm, too fast, but at least it can be two fast in both directions... Now if I were only a woodturner...)

The motor is 240 or 120 volt, and has a reset button on it, so the normal diagrams for wiring a DoublePole/DoubleThrow switch didn't make sense to dummy me.
Eddie came through. He's a Gem!!
Thanks again, Eddie!
