You guys must either think that I abuse my tools, or that I am making this stuff up.. but if you want, Ill post a video tommorrow.
I was cutting a few boards on my new mitre saw, when It wouldnt brake. Usually, the blade brakes in 5 seconds after trigger release. I could hear at first, the brake pad being applied, but then it stopped, and the blade continued turning for another 30sec-1 min. I waited for it to stop, I then unplugged the saw. I looked, nothing noticably wrong. I repeated. This time I felt the blade, it was warm around the arbour. No cutting was done.
Also the motor sounded quieter. Less of a roar, more of a “zeeee” sound. I wasnt cutting through the guard as i first thought. I cannot figure this out. It wasnt doing it, until after I finished stapling up some plastic under my workbench.. but this just seems conincidental..
I hope its just dust, since I dont have a DC system.
Irs a Ridgid 10” CMS.
