Hey Mat, if its any help you are welcome to come up and see how I've wired mine, not the same as your lathe but I have done the control box so it may give you some ideas,

I have the same lathe (different badge though) here in the UK.

I have considered doing similar, but not by adding an extra set of controls but rather removing the front control panel to a new boxed unit and connecting via an industrial plug/socket and cable assembly.
