My 33 year old Powr-Kraft RAS leaked out about 2 quarts of smoke today. I
checked the brushes and they were badly burned. Replaced 'em and the poor
old thing runs but sickly and not at full speed. I'd run out and buy a
new one or look for an old DeWalt, but this old guy has some features not
available on the others - mainly a 20.000 RPM and 3450 rpm aux spindle
that allows a lot of extra operations. Beside that, it has been very
accurate unlike what many report on newer RAS's. And it's kind of part of
the family by now.
So, the questions are:
1) Ayone know of a good motor rebuilding shop in the Phoenix/Tucson area?
2) Anyone know of an orphaned Powr-Kraft RAS motor that needs a home?
This is not precisely an answer to either of your questions but, as a 3rd
option, you might want to see if you can get a replacement motor (or parts)
