    Looks like in your switch box,
    you are mixing high current
    and low voltage. Generally not
    a good practice, especially in
    a switch box the operator will
    interface with. But your lathe,
    your rules.

      So how is that different from the High and low voltage connections, which are in closer proximity in the VFD housing?
      My VFD but their rules.

        Underwriters Labs has some specifications about it.
        Not a problem for personal machines. Just me,
        but if I can follow more standard wiring protocol,
        I generally try to do so, if it is easy for me to do.
        Not a requirement though.

          Best emergency stop is a kick switch imho, as well as not instead of
          mark

            A second emergency stop could be situated in front of the lathe. VFD's are not intended to be used to power machinery on their own, the buttons are for setting up, and remote controls should be used with a proper on-off-reverse and speed potentiometer.
