I used a small strap wrench that I purchased in the plumbing dept at home depot for $8 bucks. It worked great.

    It requires a special armature holding sleeve the clamps the armature consistantly around the circumfrence. Don't even try holding it with a vice or a pair of slip grip pliers,,,,you will damage the armature. Then unscrew the collet from the armature shaft. You will then need an arbor press to press the armature out of the bearing. Then again use the arbor press to press the bad bearing out of the housing.

How to remove the chuck from a porter cable router?


To remove the collet (not the collet nut) you must first take apart the armature from the field.
To do this,
1. Take the cap off the top by removing the two Phillips screws.
2. Remove the two brushes.
3. Remove the two Phillips screws hidden under the cap.
4.The only thing holding the top and bottom pieces now is a friction fit of the bearings. Tap with a non marking hammer on the top housing underneath the brush holders, and it should come apart after a few taps.
5.Use an armature split sleeve and put the armature sleeve in a vice to hold the armature.
6.Then use a wrench and unscrew the collet from the armature.
7. Just reverse this process to put it back together.

How do i replace brushes on porter cable model 7539 plunge router


The brushes are on the front and back of the motor, under the top cover. Remove the four screws on the top cover and remove it. The brushes are held in place by a coil spring, pull it back so the brush will slip out. Some brush leads have slip connectors and others are held in place by a screw, depends on what type router you have. Disconnect the brush lead then reverse the process to install the new brush.

Router does not work. brushes replaced. what is likely solution


Likely the power switch if brushes were done correctly unless there is a problem with the power cord but that would cover pretty much anything that would make it not start up

What causes excessive arcing at brushes when running


WOULD BE NICE TO KNOW THE AGE OF THE ROUTER. IF ITS OLD THE BRUSHES COULD NEED TO BE REPLACED - SEE HOW MUCH CONTACT MATERIAL IS STILL LEFT. IF THERE IS STILL PLENTY TRY SPREADING THE SPRING A LITTLE TO ENSURE BETTER CONTACT.
ALSO CLEAN THE AREA AND REMOVE EXCESS DUST AND DIRT

How do I hold the armature still on a Porter Cable Model 1002 Router to take the nut off to change the inner bearing


generally you would use a strap wrench to hold the armature, but if you don't have one use an old piece of rubber and wrap around armature and then gently hold in a vise to take off. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I haven't used my porter cable router for several months. Went to use it today and it won't run...any suggestions?


If it was stored in an area that wasn't dry it could be as simple as replacing the motor brushes. Part number 869659 or 824216 is available for about $5.00. The motor is pretty easy to take apart if you want to give it a good cleaning. Check your brushes first a coin or a screwdriver to take out the black plugs on the sides adjacent to the power cord. they are spring loaded so be careful. I've lost one in my personal bermuda triangle garage floor. if they look corroded take a piece of fine grit sand paper and lightly sand them. see if that does the trick, if it doesn't and you are inclined i would clean the inner and outer fields of the motor.

My 890 series router motor is not always getting up to a high enough rpm. It cuts in and out to a speed so slow that it is unable to use


could be a couple things, the bearings could be seizing up, do you hear a noise or is the motor housing getting hot to the touch. Could be the brushes worn out, unplug tool and remove the brushes and check for discoloration on the armature and brush condition. These are about the only 2 things that could cause it other than a complete electrical failure which I doubt. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number to download a breakdown for this tool if you intend to repair it yourself.

Router runs slow


I still think that it is the bearings, especially since of the squealing noise which is a symptom of the bearing seizing up and the armature shaft would get hot transferring the heat to the motor housing. Give me the model number and brand and I will find a breakdown and part numbers for you and also if you give me your general location I will try and find someone local to get the parts.
