      Re: True or False

      We use the identical switch (locally purchased) for both of them... it's all in the way it's wired. The switch is just a standard 15A 125V DPDT spring-return bat handle toggle.

        Should work either way as long as it is a DPST switch....

              absolutely but i have noticed, i think i know why you asked this, i ran into a problem when i first started where i am at the sweep reverse doesn't work if this is the case check the sweep motor if it has a relay and not a centrifugal swith the relay is wired wrong and if this is the case the motor is good for table just not sweep

                Last I checked, a sweep reverse switch is rated 10 amps and a sweep run switch s rated 3 amps. I've never tried putting one on the other so I dunno if it would work or not, but the switches themselves are definitely different.

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">You are right about the stock part switches... SWSR is 10A because it's handling line voltage directly through it's contacts. 'Sweep Run' only handles 24V to pull in the contactor. I think that was just a cost-saving thing by AMF... the 3A switches are less $$$ than the heavier ones, especially when these machines were originally built. Nowadays, the cost of the switches is cheap enough to use the same one for both positions, and it's no problem to do so... you're just putting a heavier switch in place of the ligher-rated one. One less part number to keep track of is a good thing, too.

                    same thing here, both are standard DPDT switches from RS components, they do the job fine!

                        Look at the SR switch closely- some of them had brass connector bar crossing the outside terminals. The wires on a standard DPST (momentary) may not go on the same terminals.
