Motor Wiring

I want to wire a motor for my bead roller so I can have it forward and reverse,the motor I am using is a single phase one that can be reversed by switching two wires, I want to use two momentary DPDT foot switches to do this , are these the right swithes to use and if so how do I wire them Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

How fast do you expect to be able to reverse the motor ? You would release the pedal and would have to wait for the motor to come to a complete stop before pressing the other pedal.

Switching directions.... is the following correct ?
forward A--->A and B--->B
reverse A--->B and B--->A

You would need more than the two pedals to do what you want.

The motor is a gear reduction type, waiting for it to stop isn't a problem, won't the two pedals do it ?
