Hi all jo again would anyone happen to have the wiring diagrams for the elliot 2g drill press with a hoover motor in it ive just picked one up and have refurbished it but wiring is confusing me. Electric motor wiring never been my strong point lol.

Many thanks jo

Not 100% certain, but I would have thought that perhaps a hoover motor is not original, thus perhaps making the original wiring details/connections less than perfect?

Hoover motors from Cambuslang were fitted to many Elliot machine tools.

I had an Elliot shaper (I wish I had never sold it!) and a couple of Elliot Victoria mills at the same time all with Hoover motors.

Some of the small Hoover motors were dual voltage 220/400v 3 phase units so if you have this type you can if desired fit a single phase 220Vac in 220V out 3 phase VFD, delta connection position of the link bars will be shown in the terminal cover lid.
