DC motor for a Renzetti Rod Lathe

Does anyone know if there is a DC motor that will fit on a Renzetti wrapping lathe. I would like to be able to change the direction of rotation when I am building a rod.

What does the label on the motor say? Any make and model numbers?

That motor might be reversible with a change in power source depending on what voltage it takes. AC or DC?

If it is an AC motor then no, it more than likely will not reverse spin for you. Larger 3 phase AC motors can be reversed, but one this small probably will not give you this option since it more than likely does not have a starter coil, and would use fixed magnets which will not change magnetic flux polarity.

You will probably have to switch out the AC motor to a DC motor along with a different power supply.

But if it is a DC motor, then you may be able to accomplish your goal with 1 of 2 choices: 1)Install a simple reverse switch if the motor is capable of spinning equally in both directions. 2) use another power supply that is variable and reversible- and with these you can add a foot pedal for speed control if you want to.

I found this online, but it is not clear from this website if DC is the motor's power source. All it says is "Solid State Rheastat Foot Controller" which only partially conveys a possibility of leaning towards DC. While the motor description further confuses the subject by calling it an AC/DC motor:

[www.flyrodcrafters.com]

This 1/10 HP AC/DC Motor, gives you 8000 RPM, Voltage 115, 60 Hz, 1 Phase, 1.5 Full Load Amps.

The 115v 60Hz AC could go just to the variable speed foot pedal controller which sounds like it is electronic with the description "solid state", which could mean its output is actually a DC voltage to the motor which is described as AC/DC. So this really is not clear. But the label on the motor itself might give the definitive answer.

And another thread here on this subject:

[www.rodbuilding.org]

[www.hunker.com]

ADDED:

If, and I say *if* you have a DC motor, then the foot pedal's output wire to the motor could be the place for the insertion of a simple reverse switch as long as that motor has the capability of spinning equally in both directions by a simple reversal of the power source- the same as our trolling motors operate.

But don't attempt yourself unless you are sure of what you are doing to avoid any possibility of electrical shock. Safety first!

I'm familiar with the wrapper. I can give you some help.
