Porter Cable Router Playing Up

Post by AliveOak » Mon 04 Jul , 2016 17:06 pm

Hi. The PC router in my microrouter can't maintain its revs. It sounds like the power it is receiving is flickering. I have changed the brushes and blown it out with compressed air and no joy. If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful. Cheers.

Thanks for the reply. I've sorted it. My brain only works part-time. It was the brushes after all. I replaced the worn out one with the wrong ones. D'oh! :oops:
