Default Re: Vintage 1/4 horsepower induction motor

Hi Lucien. Thanks for that interesting information. The starting switch is mounted at the back (cable-entry) end of the rotor, and is just visible through a ventilation slot beneath the motor, though I doubt I can get a good photo of it. I’ll try. The switch is of solid construction and has a bowed steel-strip spring which creates a very positive snap action.

I have asked my friend what his plans are for the lathe from which this motor originates.
