Actually, I believe the direction of rotation would be OPPOSITE
the direction indicated on the control face.

Think about it:

The BOTTOM is FIXED, and the TOP is rotating Clockwise (CW)
now, if the TOP is FIXED, and the bottom is allowed to rotate,
it must rotate Counter Clock Wise (CCW) relative to the top,
assuming power is applied in the same manner to the motor.
Anyone want to try it for confirmation?
