    I wouldn't exactly say "old" Jerry. They still use this style at some of their shops. To my knowledge, no foot pedals either. Oh the horror.

    To get reverse you lock it up in a stoppage then turn switch off

    when machine has lots of torque on it when the drum spins

    backwards at top speed you hit the on switch then it start

    running backwards that was the old way to reverse them
    Ah good ol days of rope, vice grips and a lot of torque.
    There's probably one or two guys here who might get that.
