Hello Rob and welcome!

Interesting, that. In my experience of using MOF177s and DW625s there are normally only three things which go wrong - brushes, bearings and (sometimes) speed controllers. What state are the brushes in? These can sometimes be an issue - I've even had cracked ones where tools have been dropped, but not that common. When powered off does the router turn freely by hand or does it stick? If it doesn't turn freely then suspect the bearings. What was it that caused you to suspect the speed controller? Sorry for all the questios, but I'm trying to come up with a solution

Hi Phil, thanks for the reply, the reason I suspected the speed controller was that it runs at half speed or setting 3 but no higher, though it will slow down to setting 1, i bought a new speed control unit but it does the same , which leads me to believe it is something else , the bearing is fine but need to check the brushes , but in my experience you would see the brushes arcing through the top , any thoughts

Hi James

Once they've bedded in they shouldn't really arc that much. I have to say that otherwise I'm a bit stumped, here. I've never had a DW625/MOF177 behave that way witjhout it being one of the three items I mentioned. I'll ask a couple of colleagues and see if they've ever had a probem like this

Regards

Phil
