MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION
1. Replacing a cut-off wheel.
When the cut-off wheel has already become dull by frequent use, it can cause overload
to the motor.
Consequently, re-dress or replace a dull cut-off wheel to ensure cut-off efficiency.
2. Inspecting the carbon brushes (Fig. 13 and 14).
The carbon brushes in the motor are expendable parts.
If the brushes become excessively worn, motor trouble might occur.
Therefore, inspect the brushes periodically, and replace them when they have become
worn to the wear limit line, as shown in Fig. 13.
Also, keep the carbon brushes clean be so that they will slide smoothly within the brush
holders. The carbon brushes can easily be removed after disassembling the brush caps
(see Fig. 14) with a slotted (minus) screwdriver.
