I couldn't help notice that Dennis was having a problem with a
Foredom SR motor and a Lucas #9 Lowboy.
I assume that the SR he was talking about has a special (4 prong)
male plug coming off the motor, and I also assume that the Foredom
foot control has a special (4 prong) female plug to connect to this
male plug, I believe Foredom discontinued this motor with that
If this is the case, and you want to use the #9 Lowboy instead, you
will have to cut off the male plug on the motor and replace it with
a standard 3 prong male plug that you can pick up at any local
hardware store. If this is the case, then I suggest that you buy a
good quality plug with a strain relief built into the plug.
The four wires coming off the Foredom motor are Black (hot), White
(neutral), Green (ground), & RED (cut this one off & cap it) you
don't need it.
When attaching to the New Plug, the Black (hot) gets attached to the
large prong. the White (neutral) gets attached to the smaller prong
& the Green (ground) gets attached to the round prong. and then your
good to go. :-)
