Re: Reverse electric motor switch
ac induction motors will run equally well in either direction, its how the start windings are connected
a reversible motor will have a wiring diagram under the electrical box and a switch could be wired in to reverse the start winding
of course you could leave the start winding disconnected then give the shaft a good spin in the desired direction to get it going!!
the grinder motor will almost certainly not be reversible, can you mount it so that you can access the back side and use it for reverse buffing? ie on a pedestal or on a swivel?
