    Hi,
    I've got a sewing machine clutch motor and I want to use it on a small lathe. As I understand the motor is a 3 phase 2 pole one. But what is the 6V 15-20W input for?

    Any help is really appreciated.

    Maybe it is to operate the clutch?

    The clutch is mechanical operated.

    The 6V is mentioned on the nameplate as START something... But why and how needs a 3ph motor a start winding? The motor has attached a pretty heavy flywheel on the clutch end. Does this need some sort of softstart achieved with the 6V somehow?

    Start torque of the motor is 320 something.
    .
    Going by the connector, I'd say the 6V is more likely to be an output.

    6v is for a lamp

    ooh, lamp it is (was). Now it makes sense.

    Thanks for clarification.
