Where do I get a set of brush for a mastercraft 14'' abrasive chop saw

I own a mastercraft abrasive chop saw and need to replace the brush. I am informed that mastercraft no longer keeps these parts in stock. Where else might I find some parts now.

Your best bet in this situation is to find a tool repair center that has a large supply of brushes on hand and is willing to look for a set that will work in your saw. At my repair center I do get tools like yours that don't have repair parts available. Most brushes come in standard sizes but the caps on the spring have to be compatable with the brush holder to work properly. If you don't know where a repair center is, go online and look for Authorized Service Centers in your area. You can get more specific and look for Dewalt, Ridgid, Makita, Milwaukee, etc., service centers.

SOURCE: Mastercraft 14-in. Chop Saw w/ Laser fuse problem

The fuse is more than likely, fine.
Instead, check the carbon brushes.
Once you have dis-assembled the unit, you will see the way the springs hold them in.
If you can't find the brushes, chances are, they've desintagrated into micron thick diamonds.
(Unfortunately, they're worthless diamonds lol)
Hope that helps the problem.

From snor38@gmail.com Hi dkhallquist. When you cleaned the comuntator did you carfully clean the groves as they may have enough trash to make the brushes ride roughly on the comuntator.

Looking for the 8 1/4 blades for the mastercraft chop saw.?


Hello. Mastercraft carries a variety of 8 1/4 replacement blades that are "normally" an in-stock item. The blade is labeled as a circular saw blade, not a chop saw blade.

  • standard 40 tooth Product# 55-6953-6 aprox $25
  • general purpose 24 tooth Product #55-6976-2 aprox $30
There are others that the store can order in, or to pick up on line as well. You may also notice, that the general purpose blade is rated for 8-8 1/4 inch, most of these two sizes have the same size arbour and will both fit on your saw - this gives you a varied selection. Hope this helps.

Hi i have a viperpro 2000 watt chop saw and the brushes have got to the end of there life but i can not find any one who stocks or sells them my local tool shop has told me to throw it away as they do not...


locate brushes with the same wire/spring attachments and that are slightly bigger than your brushes. Carefully reduce their size on abrasive paper laid on a flat surface, often checking for fit. They should slide into the guides freely without any sideways play. Be careful, the carbon abrades very fast and it is easy to rub off one end more than the other, rounding the surface off or having the brush taper, which is not what you want

6180-20 chop saw trips 20 amp on start up all the time Terry


If it trips the breaker as soon as you hit the switch, check the power circuit. Check the power cord for frays or cuts, especially where the cord goes into the saw. Remove/split the handle and check the wires into and out of the switch and to the brushes and field. Lood for burned or melted wires or case parts. Milwaukee is notorious for running lots of small wires in very tight places. Make sure none of them got pinched when the tool was assembled. Watch for this also when you reassemble the saw. Check the brushes, if they're worn or broke they can cause a short on the armature. If these all check out you need to have the armature checked on a growler for shorts.
If the saw runs for a few seconds then trips the breaker I'd check for gear and bearing problems. Cehck for free, smooth movement of the bearings on the armature and blade drive assembly. The blade should turn freely by hand. Feel for undue resistance or a gritty feel in the bearings and gears. If necessary replace any offending parts.

The stone on my chop saw stops cutting. Why?


Sometimes the edgeof a cutting disk can become clogged with particles of the material being cut e.g. cast iron or soft metals.
Try cutting a piece of brick or other hard material to chip away the edge of the disk to expose new abrasive

Need mastercraft chop saw 14 " bruches


Take your old brushes to a hardware store. A good store will have a selection of replacement brushes, go through them to find ones that will fit. Brushes can be sanded to size, it's the spring and connector ends that have to be as close as possible.
