Wood turning lathe (1) - A solid introduction

Updated: Apr 4, 2022

One of the problems is related to the age of the PVC cable that feeds the single phase motor. The outer mantel of the cable is deteriorated to the point wires are visible, while the shielding of the wires is still isolated but the shield is also deteriorating and the whole electronics is not safe any more. So one of the plans is to rewire everything with some nice and fresh neoprene cables.

So lets start with getting rid of the engine and see what we have at hand. The engine is a capacitor starter that uses the position of the shunt and capacitor to change the direction. This requires the change of two poles that could be done via a lathing switch. It's easy to convert the engine into a two way operating engine so I will apply this.
