The motor has broken on our Clarke lathe so I've been looking for a
replacement. The switch broke too and this it proving difficult to replace.
The systems runs a 3/4 hp with reverse and a 16mm drive shaft.
I can source a 3/4 hp with 19mm drive shaft and reversing starter at
around £180 - gulp
I've thought about just getting a cheap pillar drill and using the motor
and one-way switch...
Just wondered if anyone had any other leads/ideas
thanks in advance
