Question about Bosch Power Tools Sanders Orbital Sanders
IHAVE A BOSCH SANDER. IT ISN'T RUNNING AS WELL AS IT USED TO AND SOMEONE SUGGESTED CLEANING THE BUSHINGS. I'VE TAKEN APART THE SANDER AND FOUND THEM. THEY DON'T LOOK DIRTY. BUT, WHAT SHOULD I CLEAN THEM WITH?
It's usually not the brushes but the commutator that needs cleaned. The commutator is the surface the brushes ride on. Go to Walgreens and buy a multi-surface nail file, one of the soft ones that are about 3/4" square with different colors for different grits. Don't start at the coarse grit!! Start at the medium grit and lightly drag it over each section in a smooth arcing motion, when the commutator surface is shiny it's clean, then replace the brushes with new ones.
