    How do I wire a drill motor with a reversable switch? I know which wires are the windings. I can't get the power circuit right with the new replacement switch. I have six wires with the power Black and White. The other are the winding wires. one set is black and I have marked the others yellow. The drill was wired with one winding wire {Black} connected to the power wire also black.

    If you post a diagram it will be easier for a good answer. However, to reverse the rotation direction of a single phase AC motor you need to reverse the wires of the starting winding.
