    It was the switch. I bought an identical factory replacement for now but may still either change the motor starter and switch systems.

    Again if you laminate the stiles, then you can just cut the main mortise with a dado stack. This is a common construction method for doors.

    Thanks Kevin and Jim! All things to consider.

    The 100L frame motor is fairly common in my shop so I donít mind having a spare 3ph motor and VFD handy.
