Running C5 Lathe Motor In Reverse

Andre Anderson

Does anyone run the C5 Lathe in Reverse? Considering it for parting off large stock and or using form tools. Curious what implications are for
-Motor of spindle (I have a baumuller nurnberg 1204 - 344) 
- EMco chucks 3 jaw and 4 jaw independent
- Cross slide dovetails 


Hi Andre,

To reverse you would simply need a reversing switch because the Baumuller is a DC-Motor.
A manual switch is the less complicated solution, but one must always take care of the position of the switch.
You could use the switch output X62 PIN 7 or 18 to actuate a reversing relay. (M21/M22 or M22/M23)
