Last night I installed my new motor. I was quite excited to get it up and running so I was going fast and made a few mistakes. First I forgot to run the wires through the acess holes of the motor and the switch so I had to disconnect everything and redo it. Then I wired it for clockwise rotation only to find out I needed counter clockwise. After about an hour I had it fired up and made some curlies fly! It has lots of torque so my dreams of turning side tables out of logs and large sculpture pieces should be a reality very soon. Below is a pic of the motor fresh out of the box on my bench.
