Well laws for occupational health and safety differ between Staes and countries. I cannot see that it would be illegal to place an inline DM switch, but due to the difficulty of holding it whilst working might be awkward. I would make it into a footplate switch, as that would be much easier to incorporate it into the work place and have it passed for safety. The switch type would have to be robust enough to take the pressure and the plate small enough to allow the switch to activate if the foot was moved or lost contact from just a small deviation.

Took my mr coffee burr apart a little spring fell out now the grinder doesnt work where dose the spring go


Im first wondering why u took a good grinder apart ??? could it be that it was working only intermittently ?? if that is so , im betting the little spring is either the spring that pushes the start switch back up when u let go (otherwise it would run forever) or it might be a motor brush holder tension spring , that's most likely why its working only intermittently the brushes are worn down and need replaced , a neet hack 4 this is to use electric drill brushes ! I found they fit and can be sourced from a well stocked hardware store !!

I bought a Skil 9290-01 angle grinder and a spring that is between the on/off switch and the motor broke after about two months of use. It is a spiral spring with a semicircular loop on the end, not a...


I checked several sources and agree with you, they don't want end users to be able to repair the tool apparently. I have a toll free number for Skil that might help it is 1-877-754-5999. I also found the breakdown and they as you know don't really show any parts. They might even replace the tool for you under warranty or repair it.

Dear Sir, We have few Metabo grinder I have some doubt about Dead man switch can you explain me what is the function of dead man switch. Regards Nitin


Hello, a dead man switch functions in this manner. As long as you hold the switch down the grinder functions, and as you know when you release it the grinder stops. This is a good safety feature in that if you drop the grinder of lose control of it, if the grinder stays running it could cause a lot of damage to material or your body. The switch can seem to be a pain when having to hold it down all the time, but it is a safety feature that can actually save your life in the case of you losing control of the unit.

I have a Buffalo B-10CB(CH) bench grinder and the on/off switch has broken, it's a push/pull type. What can I replace it with to make it work safely?


You could connect the wires of the switch together inside and bypass the switch. Then I would connect in the power cable a switch rated for 1 hp. You can use surface mount electrical box, with two cable connectors (one for the cable going into the grinder, the other for the cable going to the male cord end of the cable. Install a 120 volt switch inside the box (similar to the light switch in the wall). Make sure that the switch is rated for 1 hp. I would install the switch under the bench, under the grinder.

Dewalt dw 400 grinder is locked up


Two things come to mind. One the drive head (gear box) has failed. Remove the cover from the gear box and see what is going on in there. Second, do you know the button you push to lock the drive so can remove or install (tighten) a new wheel? Make sure it is releasing. Most of these are spring loaded and if that spring fails the lock mechanism can stay engaged. Hope this helps.

Powerbase model no 830806 9'' angle grinder the switch has broken -hardly used can I get a spare switch or is it worth repairing


The switch can be repaired if you have the patience. There are four springs inside and some contacts, which should be cleaned. The small springs are place under the contacts and the large springs fit on the end of the metal blade that is attached to the switch button, and the other end of each spring fits on a plastic spigot on the inside of the smaller switch housing. The switch is best assembled on the trigger and the outer housing placed over it once everything is in place.
Like I said earlier, patience is the key!

Can't get grinder to turn on. Checked brushes, cord, trigger/switch. Any suggestions?


Did you check continuity to the field/brush holders. They have a garter spring that sometimes became overheated and broke. It seems like you have done everything else. Let me know
