    Fairly new lurker here, electronic newbie. I just obtained a 3 HP
    Baldor DC motor catalog number 6d6203. Nameplate reads:

    VOLTS 180A/200/100F
    AMP 13.2A/45/9F
    RPM 750
    Service Factor 1

    May I please have a recommendation or direction on how I might get a
    motor controller for this DC motor. The application is for a medium
    metal lathe spindle drive. I would at least like to have variable
    speed and torque, electronic braking and instant reverse. Reasonable
    pricing would be definitely desireable, specific surplus sourcing is
    preferred to new because of price. Input power would be 120 or 240VAC
    single phase. I can follow schematic diagrams and do fairly well with
    electronic assembly/soldering without understanding the electronic
    components and what they do for those who would like to direct me to
    some kit or someones homebuilt controller. Any constructive input
    would be deeply appreciated.

  3. Try Dart Controls. I purchased one of of their controls to replace a failed control in an old treadmill. Works well.
