Has anybody here had success at replacing the brushes in a Dewalt Mitre saw?
I’ve got about a 15 year old DW703 that has recently stopped starting. You can spin the blade (power off of course) a few times and then it might start. Or whack the motor casing a few times and it might start. Because it has been so dependable I’d hate to throw it away, but then i don’t think it would be worth mailing in for repairs.
In any event I’m probably in the market for a new saw, a slider this time. Dewalt’s new DWS780 12” looks pretty attractive, and doesn’t need a ton of rear clearance. Anybody have experience with it?
