Default DW611 Replacement Brushes

Hi, my DW611 brushes seem to be reaching their end-o-life - need to get some replacements. I've got well over 100 hrs on these brushes so it's about time. Is there much difference between the random ones on ebay/amazon or should I follow my instincts and buy exact OEM replacements (at about 3X per unit cost)? Alternatively, are there better than the OEM brushes out there? I use it in my CNC router so the price of failure is potentially a ruined job, not just lost time. Willing to pay more for the best.

I looked for a thread on this and got no hits. Seemed strange to me that it hasn't been discussed.

Also, should I look to replace bearings or anything else. It's a nice little router.

Not certain if you looked here, https://www.ereplacementparts.com/de...26_180562.html but they have them and ship quickly. I buy most of my tool repair parts from them and they have never let me down.

Here are some on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/i/124347692164?...nd%3DUnbranded In my opinion a brush should be a brush all made of carbon with a wire attached. My friend used to rebuild automotive car starters and alternators he always used aftermarket parts / brushes with great success.

Yeah, looked at those. Those are about 4X brush cost over the amazon ones. Will probably order OEM though there are a couple of cheaper places, especially when you factor in shipping.
