So i put the 9v battery on to Pin 2 and Pin 7(earth) as suggested, then pressed the one of the buttons on the switcher, then spindle starteded but got faster and faster until i took my finger off, didnt want it going mega fast so wimped out lol
Z and X are nice and warm, not hot now, so might stick with 18k resistors for now
So now you know it works try a 1.5 volt battery.John S -
Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated.
Tried two AA batteries giving 3v and again worked, not as fast so i will try just one like John S Suggests.
Just need to work out how i can get this button to be pressed Via the PC.
the contactor on my boxford 240tcl has a 240v coil, so be carefull around it.
Looking at the 125 schematic, it's 240v as well.
Yeah I'm not happy about pressing the contactor myself.
get the missus to do it.

So wanting to keep with the "not overly exspensive" side of things,
ive seen this
Think it should be fine for the 125
She has already stated the lathe is far too noisy hahaha, unlucky!
make your own, you can have as many relays as you want then
