Us few drummers on here all know that using brushes is quieter... and then
started using table saws where brushes means ungodly loud. I couldn't believe
the difference switching from a tabletop brushed motor TS to a "proper"
induction motor. Serious danger of injury from not hearing the motor running.
As to yer busted motor. I''d rip it out and drag it along to the local
washing machine repair place (seriously) and get 'em to check it out and
quite for a recondition/exchange if faulty. They may have brushes to fit or
have a rewind/recondition service on the premises or be able to recommend
their pet service if not. These guys handle fancy multispeed oscillating
reversing motors all day. A TS motor will be child's play for 'em.
If you know of a motor rewinders, try them first, or as well. They'll be able
to tell you if there's a fault to be fixed.
If they don't have to dismantle a machine there'll probably be no charge for
a quick check, or maybe a nominal fee whereas taking the whole thing
somewhere for a strip and check will cost you £25. GBP ?45.00 USD just to
look at it.
Then it's a judgment call - is the repair price worth it?
when you dismantle, the saw may have a left-handed thread (motor on your
right, normal operating position) - or a right handed thread if it's on the
