After blowing up what I hoped was going to be a real nice hollow form (because I didnít remove my hollowing tool before reaching around the steady rest to shut off the lathe ) Ė I decided it was time to install a remote on/off switch.

What I am asking for is input from some of our electrical experts as to where to place the switch in the circuit. I have included the schematic for the lathe and also a close up of the area of interest.

At this time I believe the remote switch should be placed in series between the Push/Pull/Switch and the Fwd/Rev Switch. Best that I can tell - the Push/Pull Switch does nothing more than supply a ground to the Forward/Reverse Switch. Figured it would be safe to place the remote switch in series between those two switches. Thought about the Blue wire located at the input to the Push/Pull Switch but do not want to eliminate the ground from the Potentiometer (Speed Control) when I remotely shut the lathe off.
Just in case you can't read where the Blue wire connects to on the controller - it is ground.
Thanks for your assistance!
