Your only hope is to find similar brushes made for some other tool. Remington saw has gone out of business. This seems to be a common problem with this brand of saw. Good luck!

What keeps a makita reciprocating saw from starting?

It could be several things:

1) Brushes - easiest to check, most Makita models are accessible from the outside through round caps on either side of the tool. Check to see if the brush springs still have good recoil and the brushes themselves aren't chipped or burnt.
2) Switch - you will need a multitester to check the switch. Using the continuity setting, check to see if you have continuity through the switch when the trigger is depressed.
3) Armature - if the armature has failed you most likely would have also found the brushes badly burnt or chipped. You should be able to get an idea by looking down the brush tube with a flashlight and looking at the condition of the armature - it may appear slightly black, but should not look burnt or have unusual spaces between the commutator segments.
Let me know if you need further help.

Bosch Table saw sparking and lacking power.

Forgive me as I'm not too educated on the configuration of this saw but when I heard you mention armature replacement it made me think....are there armature brushes that are worn out. I know a lot of my angle grinders spark, get real hot, and smells like burnt plastic when brushes are worn out. Are there brushes on this saw? Just a thought.

Bosch 4000 table saw wont power on

The field is notorious for failing in these tools -
If you remove the cap on the field housing you can access the field wires - check to see if you have continuity through the field windings.
To further investigate
1) Remove the brushes and inspect them for excessive wear or chipping (If they look burnt or are chipped the armature is suspect)
2) Remove the 4 screws holding the field assembly to the saw frame
3) Pull the field off and inspect the armature (especially the commutator (copper segments the brushes ride on) for burnt or raised segments or windings.

"DWDewalt DW712 won't always start until I rap the housing. runs slow"

Start with the brushes - they are either worn low or the brush tubes are causing them to stick so they don't contact the armature - this is why it starts when you 'rap' it.
Running slow can be a bad armature or field from running hot because of the bad brush connection.
1) remove the brushes
2) remove the 4 bolts holding the motor to the saw
3) pull the armature out and inspect for signs of being burnt (especially look at the copper commutators where the brushes sit)
4) inspect the field for signs of being burnt

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?

Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

Looking for cost of replacement motor for skilsaw model 3400 13amp for 10" table saw and where to buy from? Also, is there a 15amp replacement motor that would bolt right in to replace?

i looked online at places I get parts from. Neither listed the motor as a part the had the aramature for about $70 and the field for about $35. Have you tried the reset button? also it may just need new brushes.(if you see lots of sparks at the end of the motor opposite the blade, look through the air vent slots it is likely the brushes, unplug the saw, and take them out and replace them HERE is a blow up ) the I would think that if the saw is well used and the motor has burnt out. It may be a lost cause. I am not sure what the price of this was new but you can get a reconditioned saw from Amazon for 135 bucks. And it is a 15 amp saw.

Chainsaw won't start

These saws seem to have chronic motor brush problems, and because Remington saws has gone out of business, parts are nearly impossible to find. If you have a broken brush, you may be able to substitute one from a drill or other light tool. Good luck!

I am getting a flash at the back off the motor and running poor

you either have burnt/worn brushes or the armature is bad. unplug tool and remove the brushes to check their condition and then use a flashllight to look into the brush tubes (if you can) and rotate the saw by hand to look for any unusual discoloration on the commutator. Let me know if you need more guidance.

Vacuum motor shaft too hot

Check the brush roll ends, will they turn easily or is one frozen. If so, you need to replace the brush roll. If the motor turns on, it and the belt are trying to turn the brush roll and can't. Also check the ends where the brush roll sits in and make sure it hasn't overheated and melted., If it did you will have to replave the base.
