As I said above, I didn't run the 240V lines to my remote box but I did make a relay box and ran low-voltage wire to my remote box to control the 240V via the relay.
I moved the General's Stop/Start pushbutton assembly, now controlling the relay low-voltage circuit, to my remote box which also has the speed control pot in it. I consider having the speed control pot near the start button a safety feature because you can readily see the speed setting before you hit start.
My intent was to not modify the lathe itself any more than necessary. What I did was only one way to approach the problem and it could probably be done with just adding a remote box with the stop/start switches acting directly with the VFD and its control voltages.
