No ground wire on old 1/4 hp motor?
I just picked up an old 1/4 horse motor for my lathe. The crazy thing has a toggle switch on it! The plug on it currently is older then me. 2 prongs, no ground. No green wire evident beneath the switch either. I'm obviously going to update the wire and bypass to the toggle switch to the power switch for my lathe.
Should I just loop the ground wire from the lathe switch around one of the screws for the motor cover plate? Should I just not bother to connect it at all (on either end)?
The current wiring set up works (and has worked I assume for 40 years?). I just want to update it without potentially shocking myself down the road in case something goes amiss.
Thanks for any tips,
The grain has more direction then me sometimes.
