Question about Hitachi C15FB 15" Heavy Duty Miter Saw
Brake is controlled by the switch. There are two switches that can be used on your saw. One switch has only on/off, the other switch is on/on. On motor when pressed and on brake when released. The switch with brake does not last very long because the braking action is really just shorting motor circuit (short circuit). All motors can produce electricity. The brake action occurs by shorting motor thru switch. Electricity that motor is producing while turning forces armature to stop. Other brands use a resister in breaking system to absorbe current help switch last longer. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck
