Question about Bosch 12" Dual - Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Upfront Controls and Laser Tracking 4212L

2 Answers

Miter saw motor slowing down

Brushes are about 5/8 long, however the motor will not go to full speed, it seems like 1/2 speed. there is a pretty good arc coming from the brushes. The brushes do not seem to be wearing any, and there is no burn or hot smell coming from the motor even after continued use.

    All mains powered tools will tend to spark a little, even when new, it's a feature of the power passing between the brushes and commutator. However, if the sparking is significantly increased then it's likely that it's a sign of wear in the brushes, or worse, burning of the commutator. It'll need to be taken apart and inspected. New brushes might restore it a bit, or it might need a new armature as well. Often it's as cheap to replace the unit as to attempt to overhaul it! Good luck!

My bruno regal 44 scooter seems to slow down after a few hundered meters, once I stop, its at full speed again, is the a safety feature?


You maybe experiencing a brake hanging up, causing drag on the motor. the brain box senses over current use and will automatically slow down. The motor brushes maybe worn down and have a build up of carbon powder, particularly on the bottom side of the motor, causing this problem, remove brushes and blow out with compressed air, no Sprays please this can cause more harm than good. Note take out all brushes before blow it out with air. Check brushes springs are not discolored. http://www.strege.com/BlueDoc

Makita LS1013 110V feels underpowered. What could have caused this? Brushes are barely worn.


How underpowered? running at half speed? If so check the wiring in the 110v plug. I have seen saws come into the workshop where 1 of the wires is connected to earth pin this results in 55v being fed to saw hence 1/2 speed. Is there heavy arcing at the commutator? if yes armature probably blown. If not still worth examining armature for discolouration, examine field coils at same time if everything seems ok then a possibility is the controller. You could try by passing the controller and if saw seems to run better then you know you need a new controller. It is located at the back of the motor. If you are not sure about electrics do not try this you may electrocute your self or blow the controller.

How do you change the brushes


You have two, 1/2 inch flat head screw things on the right side of the motor, pull them out, the carbon should be at least 1/4 inch long, min, brushes can be bought at the hardware store. The electric brakes on those saws eat them brushes up. Check it out.
