SCM TOP 35 Q's

I posted the electrical-specific Q's in the electrical forum, this one is about user experience.

https://www.practicalmachinist.com/...2-coils-motor-starters-simultaneously-402130/

Does anyone run one of these or its smaller brothers?
Do you run it on 230v?
Have you ever had to replace the control/starter?
If so, did you go original, or design a different approach?

I've owned mine for 10 - 12 years. Had to replace the control when acquired. Ran it regularly for a couple months but not really that large a volume of work. It has seen only sporadic use since. Ran it off & on for a few days this past week, it fried the contacts again/already.

I had drilled the first unit apart to see if i could rebuild the contacts, so i knew what was inside.
Drilled this one in hopes that between the 2, i could match some parts and get it going again, but when they go, they seem to really go....

My plan is a US contactor, but again, the question here is, does anyone have a similar experience? Or has yours been trouble free including extensive use?

Thanks!
