So could this switch be used for forward and reverse ( I believe it can) and the just get the vfd and use this switch with it?
Just to be clear, I order the for parts above and then should have everything needed to get it wired up, be able to control rpm and forward and reverse.On a belt drive single machine, a VFD is probably the easiest and the variable speed will come in very handy. Installing a VFD on a mill is very straight forward. WIre the VFD to single phase power, wire the VFD motor outputs directly to the motor, replace the current direction switch with a simple FOR-OFF-REV switch with two contact blocks (used to switch the VFD low voltage direction inputs), add a speed pot or use the one on the VFD. QED. It will also be quite a bit less expensive then a RPC unless you put together something yourself. Mount the VFD away from any chips, some people will mount them in the base.
The Teco L510 is a basic VFD, manual is very readable, has a warranty and also tech support. Otherwise you can ask questions in this forum and get your questions addressed.
