    I have a dual voltage 110/220 motor that is a 6 wire connection. It is on a Lathe and I want to wire it for high voltage. It must be able to reverse. Is this possible considering this: The leads have to be connected this way-L1 to #1 - #3,#8,and #2 tied together and L2 to #4 and #5. To reverse, #5 and #8 have to be switched. I currently have it working on low voltage with two contactors doing the reversing but I'm not sure if I can wire it to reverse with this existing control circuit. Any advice?

    i didnt get the wiring/connection,
    perhaps a forum search would help,
    for an AC motor to reverse the direction any two phases can be interchanged.

    Reversing the direction by interchanging two phases only works on 3 phase motors. This is a single phase motor.

    oops i thought it was a 3 phase motor,
    see if this helps.
