Please help - Dewalt Variable speed router - RPM just went beyond the max.
I did a search, and I cannot find anything about it. Google shows only a single reference, so I was hoping someone here could help me out.
I purchase a very expensive router set. Dewalt's variable speed router with a number of attachments. I purchased one, and about 2 weeks later, while routing, I heard a distinct 'snap', and suddenly the RPM went beyond the maximum. The dial no longer worked and the motor felt like it was a run-away. I returned it immediately. Lowes said they'd never heard of such a thing.
Well the replacement just did the same thing, and I'm dying here. I've not used the router in the last 4 months or so, and I'm beyond any 90 day return. Anyone ever heard of this? I cannot imagine that 2 routers would go bad on me personally, and nobody else. I would appreciate ANY suggestions, recommendations, etc.
Thanks very much,
