DeWalt DW618 Router Is Sparking....Time For New Brushes ?

1639 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  JIMMIEM
My DeWalt DW618 is sparking. I have read that a little sparking is normal. Is there a way to tell if there is too much sparking and the brushes should be replaced? I suppose that I could open it up and just check the brushes but once inside probably should replace them anyway.
Best source to buy brushes? Any good youtube videos on the process?
Thank You.

I guess it could even be pulverized. The most magnetically attractive parts would probably be around the armature. (might be like a blender in there when running) I hope it didn't cause other damage. Comments at ereplacementparts mention it's fairly common and how to fasten the replacement (Loctite).
