I'm confused.  My lathe has a forward and reverse and it seems to be wired wrong.  I put it on forward the wood turns away from me, reverse and the wood turns toward me. I will have to turn wood in reverse all time? Straighten me out. Cheesy

It sounds like maybe a couple of wires on the switch were reversed.  That would be the first place I look.

I remember hearing about this here on the forum...do a search.
IIRC, Delta will send out a new switch.

If the switch is reversed, why not leave it as is and just turn in reverse?

To me the only thing about keeping it that way is if someone else try's to use it and might get hurt.
I wish I would not have given mine away and kept it, but when a vet feels they can turn on their own then if I have a extra small lathe I give it to them and some tools if I have any left also.
