Question about Saws
The saw I have had for 5 years and is my second scroll saw. Today after using it just 3 days ago I attempted to use it and it would not turn on. The light comes on so I know it has power. I pulled each of the brishes out and they are still almost new with well over 1 1/2 inch on material left.
I have attempted to reset the reset button but it seems to be in the up position and I cannot get it to click or move.
Do you have any suggestions before I have to take it to a repair centre.
As a result of the power being on to the attached light I knew it was not a power source problem so I took the fuse area cover off(with the machine unplugged) and saw there were no loose connections in that area. I then removed the front control area where the two swithes for the saw and light were. I took off the two wires on the saw switch and then plugged the saw in and jumped the two wires together. The saw worked!!!!!!. I then changed the light switch over to the saw switch location and the switch works . It appears it was a faulty switch. Today I will call the Dremel 1-800- number and order a new switch.

Lubricate the arm bearings with oil after 10 hours of use.
Re-oil after every 50 hours of use or whenever there is a
squeak coming from the bearings.
1. Turn saw on its side (Fig. 18).
2. Remove rubber plug to expose bronze bearing.
3. Squirt a generous amount of SAE 20 oil around the shaft
end and bronze bearing.
4. Let the oil soak in overnight in this condition.
5. Next day repeat the above procedure for the opposite
side of the saw.
