. . . . I picked up a delta 46-111 wood lathe with the original stand. Someone installed a metal toggle on/off switch onto the motor housing itself. Bad place and not safe.
I am looking on the web for a safe and aesthetic solution to this problem. I am fairly adept at house wiring, have replaced light fixtures, some new wiring and installed new circuit breakers, and can follow schematics. I’ll take it to a pro if I have to.
I would appreciate any info on switch types and wire gauge/type needed. I have seen folks use table saw switches and even household light switches. I have seen mentioned a “magnetic” switch which is supposed to be better for startup?
