I have been fixing up my new to me Atlas 12 3996 and its time to change out the ancient wiring. I have decided to switch it over from 220 volts to 115 volts. I'm pretty competent with construction wiring but when it comes to motors with drum switches I'm lost.
All of the information I have is included in the pic's. IS THERE AN ELECTRICIAN IN THE HOUSE?
This is the final step to making chips and I am really chomping at the bit.
Thank's in advance,
Tim
