    Show ALL the wires..... for reversible, there are usually 5 wires into the motor. Sometimes 4. If not 5 wires, then that switch is likely the wrong one.

    Eating is a sure precursor to death. Sometimes very quick, other times slower.

    Breathing, ditto

    drinking water ditto.

    Quitting is not advised by the better medical experts, however.

    If your switch has an appropriate HP rating, then you are fine.

    Otherwise, maybe not..... the HP rated switches have large short term overload capability, the current rating is not what you use, ...

    That's a possibility.

    OP has not been back in a month..... either he solved it, gave up, decided we were no help, or it electrocuted him. Dunno which, hope not the latter.

    You don't have much friction area. I'd be tempted to put in some blocks against that "spigot" to help hold it, or flip it and set it on a larger ring.

    But, all it has to do is work for a couple...

    If the rotab has a smooth ground surface, then either lay down a sheet of thin paper first, or rough up the surface a bit. Either will give more "grip" for a given force down. With the stud and...

    Problem is, "V^2" goes up a lot faster than "m". The payoff for more speed is just way better, especially if weight is a consideration, and it usually...

    Or get the t-slot nut right up to the part, so a lot of the force is just compression on the slot material.

    Yep, that is a good way, and it ends up looking for other faults as well, like failed capacitors, etc, etc. It does evade the usual "bridge two power terminals" solution, which will not help.
