Does anyone know, with any degree of certainty, if it is ok to install a simple DPDT toggle switch inline the wiring to the motor to serve as an forward/off/reverse switch? I'm reading a lot of conflicting information on the web. Thanks

I've done it, it's simply a quick plug in with the appropriate part. I searched online and found the correct plug/lead that I ordered from China (sold in 5 packs/$5). I have an extra lead if you'd like one, just send me a PM with your mailing address. Easily fits in a mailing envelope.

Here's the link to my LMS Mini Mill mods, including this one. Read it through...

You can zoom in on one of the control box pics to see the specs on the switch. 6A / 125V.

Looked through my goodie box today and actually found a switch with the same specs. Its got 6 pins vs 3 like yours, but I'll only use one side.
Thanks again for all your help.
