SInce my mill motor is a 2-pole it runs at double the speed I need and all my speeds are threfore doubled. I spied a 1450rpm induction motor on eBay finishing soon and not too far - but I don't know if:

1. It's suitable as a spindle drive motor and
2. If it can be wired for reverse

Anybody know?

as long as its a single phase motor it should run the same as your present motor.
