    Icon12 Wiring 2 tortoise's for a crossover using 1 dpdt switch

    Hi all
    My question is how do I wire the motors so I can control the crossover from a single DPDT center off switch ? I also want to use 2 led for indication.
    Also a diagram would be really helpful ! thanks in advance !

    Why not use 1 tortoise? That's what I intend to do.
