Brushes on Orbital Sander Craftsman


Is there any rule of thumb for replacing the brushes on orbital sanders?
I mean what are the settings if any.
Thanks.

That's good just as long as he doesn't put them in upside down or backwards. :)

Yes, when it stops working, replace them.

Inspect the brushes; if they have good length and are smooth on the working end, blow off the dust and put 'em back in.
If they're short, consider putting new ones in.
If they're ragged on the working end, you need to disassemble and clean (or lathe-turn) the commutator. Wipe with alcohol, rub with metal polish (string dipped in polish and wrapped around does it easy), or rub down with very fine sandpaper, have all worked for me.
