Router brushes

Postby loyd » Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:52 pm

I have a Porter-Cable model 690 router that has been in my Shark CNC machine since I got it several years ago and before that was used for a couple of years for regular router duties. I recall checking the brushes once and hating the experience. Today I had the occasion to THINK I needed to check the brushes again [see today's whine in the CNC forum].
Has anyone had the experience of inspecting the brushes on a 690? I can't imagine how Porter-Cable came up with that design. There must be something that I'm missing in this process. The only way you can get those brushes back into the machine is by a process of trial and error. Try to get the brushes in, fail to get the tabs into the required openings, try again . . . Ad Nauseam!
And don't believe the instructions on the parts suppliers' websites. Grrrrrrrrrrr!
