Vote by Fantastic flag! I do need for it to be reversible. If you have connected the motor the same way it was originally connected to the same or an equivalent source and nothing happened, there are several possibilities. This would be the start winding connection. The remaining wire is going to go to the middle of the three functional connections of the reversing starters.

What voltage do you want to connect to and which rotation direction.
Any help would be appreciated as I don't want to hook it up wrong and damage it. Can you get a clear pic of the plate that has all the data on it? Connect 1 to L1, 2 to L2 and 3 to L3.

There is a control box and control switch box on the front of the lathe which also has a armored cable coming from it with only two wires in it. Other times, you might wire 2 wires to hot, 2 to neutral, 2 to ground, etc.
