I have a harbor freight motor set up on my draw bench that is set up for forward and reverse dpdt switchhttp://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/attachments/dpdt-ac-motor-reverse-png.21642/
This is the original design I used. I would like to add a micro switch to stop the carriage from going too far.

If this is a DC motor you use a limit switch in series with either the red or black and place a rectifier diode across the switch that allows you to reverse off it, as long as the switch will carry the motor current.
