SOURCE: Motor not working on Delta table saw: I just got a

Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.

SOURCE: what would cause the brushes to go so fast?

Are you using original parts or pattern

All brushes are made from carbon but they vary in their hardness and motor makers match the materials for the different applications

Soft brushes wear away quite quickly and hard brushes wear out the commutator of the armature

As stated by the other helper the segments of the armature can lift or go dead which makes the brushes arc when they stop conducting as they hit the dead segment and then spark when they pick up the next conductive one

Look at the commutator with a strong light if there are segments that are more of a blue colour that the rest they are the damaged ones.

You will see scorching on the leading edge of the next good segment.

If that is the case then new armature & carbons is the way to go

SOURCE: Bosch 4000 table saw. The saw stopped while

If you are mechanically inclined and it sounds that way do you have a volt ohms meter?? If so start at the cord and check the continuity to the brush holders. Why did you replace the field? You might have had a stuck brush or some other problem. Make sure the brushes move freely in the tubes and also look for discoloration on the commutator of the armature. Let me know what you find and I will try and help you thru the rest of it.

Take right side panel off (right as looking at front of table saw). Side panel will be held in place with 8 small Phillips screws. Take flat screwdriver and unscrew round brush holder on either side of
motor. Brushes are held in place with springs and fastener. Flick small fastener with fingernail and fastener and spring should pop out. Pull out fastener/spring/brushes(all one piece). Replace with new brushes (about $8/piece on ebay).

How to replace brush holders on dewalt table saw dw745

There is a small allen screw in the field housing holding the brush holders in.
Most often I have found, if the brush holders are needing replacement the motor housing also needs replacement - they heat up and the plastic cracks.

How do i fit reducing ring 16mm bore onto a30mm bore table saw blade, to use on a draper table saw

the reducer should fit right onto the shaft, if its the right size. Mic it to ensure. Then the blade should fit on no prob. I use a 30mm to 5/8" adapter on my own General 50-185 saw. Quality(sizing) of adapter is an issue.

My Bosch table saw motor runs but sparks are coming out the back of the motor. I replaced the bushings and that didn't help. Please advise.

The sparks are most likely coming from the brushes and the commutator. This is an indication of either worn brushes or an armature that is failing and if used further, will burn out. First check the brushes and look at the condition of the commutator. These motors are known to be problematic.
