      The motor I am using IS the one from surplus center. To reverse it you have
      to bring the wires from the brushes out to a cross connected DPDT switch as
      it is not a PM type motor. It works very well however you should plan to run
      the motor in the CW direction for normal use and only occasionally reversing
      it for the odd things that reverse is handy for. The brushes have an
      "offset" to them that make them more efficient in the CW direction. I have
      not been able to notice any difference. These are VERY torquey motors and
      the feedback speed regulation makes them maintain a pretty constant speed
      over varying torques. There are a couple of mods you will want to do to make
      the ramp up time shorter and to let you start them at a preset speed rather
      than having to start from dead slow every time. The mods are in the 1998
      dropbox archive under treadmot or I can send them of to anyone that needs
      them/can't find them.

      Hope this helps / makes sense :)
