Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

In order to use a motor for both directions, you need to install what is referenced as a reversing drum switch, which is designed with multiple contacts in order flip flop the connections on the motor on the fly.

It isnt possible with any standard switches unfortunately.

I can determine the possible the drum switches that would work and the appropriate wiring diagram.

Let me know and we can continue to get you going

I won't need to switch the motor on the fly ,only after I have switched to the off position first, and after the motor has stopped.

Sorry quotes in wrong place.Ill try again...you recommended the "spring return switch" over the "position maintained",why? And what is the difference?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Seems to me" position maintained" is the correct one for my application. ... The switch needs to remain in what ever potion I leave it in.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can rate your advice but was waiting for an answer about the specific switch . You have not replied about my previous request. You sent me a diagram for a spring returned switchI need to know if that same diagram applies to a position maintained switch and does does that switch have a built in on off for power or does the middle position serve that purpose?
