I recently purchased a used PC 7529 router off feebay for more than I shoiuld have paid. The router looked close to new and I gave the jackass $165 for it. I tested it at first and it ran so I assumed all was well.
After the return period was over I finally needed to use the thing and it is so weak it barely routes a dado in soft maple. My 690 routers route rings around this beast. I have another identical router mounted for RP door styles and it has plenty of power. I checked the brushes and they look fine.
So what would be the cause this 2.25hp router being so weak? What can I do to get it up to snuff without paying for a new one? Do you think it could be the field and/or the armature?
