There’s a circular magnet on top of the armature of this router that has something to do with how the variable speed works. Long story short, it’s worked itself free, was making a horrible noise and speed selection no longer works.
I’ve whipped out the magnet to stop the grating noise (I need to use that router to finish something off as well), so the question is, is there an adhesive I can use to bond the plastic casing of the magnet onto the tip of the metal shaft of the armature?
The magnet is insulated by the plastic casing it’s held in, so I don’t think conductivity is an issue. It’s just a friction fit, no splines or anything – and the second time this has happened – I bought a replacement magnet to fix it the first time, but that fix has only lasted a few months.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
