Default Logan lathe

HI I have a Logan, Montgomery Wards Lathe Model 54-2130
Ser# 8081.
I need to know how the wires from the Switch is wired to the
Motor? I lost the sheet with my wiring drawn on. So i'm a
little bit lost ?

Thank You
Rod in MN

The last I knew Logan was still in business, now known as Logan Actuator Co., & run by a member of the Logan family. He still supported the lathes to some extent, so a wiring diagram shouldn't be a problem.
Maybe Google Logan Actuator & see what comes up...

There is not enough info in your question to even hazard a guess. Single phase, single rotation wired thru a toggle switch? Single phase, dual rotation wired thru a reversing drum switch? Dual speed?

Or 3 phase single rotation, or dual rotation, make it a nightmare and dual speed too? Maybe DC?

How about some pics, because you know, they can be worth a 1000+ words.
