When you are finishing the surface, it's vital to maintain control. Work too fast or too slow and you risk ruining your hard work with unsightly scratches

I have 2 makita variable speed polishers....i have fixed them myself many times..its either brushes or cord...My older one is two years old,and it is really acting up replaced brushes yesterday and stopped...

look for excessive lambs wool in the area around the armature/commutator. Then look for the commutator being cupped real bad and if so you would need to replace it or have it turned at a repair shop if it is not that bad. Clean the brush tubes also to make sure the brushes move freely.

Gears seem to be skipping. which of the 2 gears is most likely to wear? the one on the armature? or the big disk one?

If one gear is damaged it is causing damaging to the other, whether you can see it or not. If you have teeth that are skipping, the gear with bad teeth will wear out the teeth on the other gear. You should always replace both gears. On your polisher, the small drive gear isn't on the armature, it's part of the armature (Makita part number 515266-4) and that's a $90 to $110 part to replace. The spiral bevel gear (Makita part number 227455-6) is $40 to $45. You can replace one or the other but the gear you leave in will only wear out the new one.

Porter cable polisher5 7424 only works at max speed

it could be that the variable speed module is malfunctioning. If it is the part number is 886978 and lists for 12.27. I would check for a buildup of polishing pad inside the handle area and clean thoroughly before ordering any parts. You can view a breakdown at

A makita 9227C does not work

Hi, Unfortunately there is no external test, It has to be opened and troubleshot with a multimeter. Especially something with a variable speed controller, power cord, brushes, switches, ect. It could be several things. If you are technical enough to take it apart let us know we will try to help. Good Luck to you!

Dewalt pollisher getting hot and blowing black dw849r

I have worked on polishers from several places, and really the best solution is to get a second polisher.
Polishers get really hot after prolonged use and people that use them that hard use one until it gets hot and then they switch off to the other and let the first one cool. It's expensive from the stand point you have to buy a second tool, but running a polisher to the point that it's too hot to hold onto is how they get burned up and you'll be buying another one anyway.
