Hi krv,
I just had a look on the Emco 10 group, covers other Emco lathes as well. One of the guys has posted a re-wire diagram for the 10 that removes the original mechanical switch & replaces it with normal ones. There is also another file that has the wire diagram for the 10 using the mechanical switch. You need to be a member to see the files. Hope this helps. The group has lots of knowledgeable guys & like here only to willing to help if you have an issue.

Cheers Kerrin
