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.

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.
