Question about Saws
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.

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.
