There were two articles in a recent Model Engineering Workshop mag on
these motors - I'll see if I can find them.
"Electric Motors in the Home Workshop" ISBN 1-85486-133-6 and
"Electric Motors" ISBN 0-85242-914-2" both by JIm Cox also cover
their alternative use.
I have a defunct motor out of our Hoover w/m, put
aside for refurb and then onto the lathe as a
variable speed, reversible drive.
Will I ever get round to it?
Very doubtful, but I can't bear to dump it atm.
If you want to use a speed controller, then you would be best using the
board that you have as it is made for that motor. If you intend to only use
it at full speed, then you can wire it directly without going through the
you still haven't said what you intend using it for.

Nobody asked me what I wanted to use it for :S
I intend it as a general-purpose workshop power unit, but that depends
upon the ease-of-use (maybe with belts and shafts around the ceiling
like in the old steam-powered mills - or not if the HSE catch me!)
