I have the Delta 22-580 lunch box planer. I got it as a hand me down and it seemed to work great until last week when it quit on me. I figured it might be the brushes and sure enough they were really worn down. I ordered a new set and installed them YESTERDAY. Planer seemed to be running well again except for a somewhat scary scratchy noise. I just figured that noise was a part of wearing in the new brushes. Well, my planer just died again today after maybe 2 to 3 hours of use on the new brushes. The have worn down to about 5/16” from about 5/8” yesterday.
Is this normal?
Surely I don’t need to be replacing these things after 4 hours of use? The initial ones probably lasted about 20 to 30 hours…
