Default Re: Vintage 1/4 horsepower induction motor

Hi Mark. It’s only driving a 2” model engineer’s lathe, so 1/4 HP is probably more than adequate. I’m thinking of using a plastic terminal box, cut to shape to surround the terminal block and held by the two existing bolts, to provide a secure fixing for a cable gland.
