TS 55 saw brushes / blade stop
« on: April 01, 2017, 04:25 PM »
Good evening ladies and gentleman ,
very new to the group but using Festool since i started carpentering , best tools out there in my oppinion .
Unfortunately i had some issues today with my beloved TS 55 . Saw some plywood and suddenly it stopped , not tunring on anymore .
thought would be brushes so i opened up motor cover at home and tried to lift brushes .
Are those really so darn hard to get out ? lifting with a screwdriver or pliers didn´t work at all ?!
Do i have to wiggle them in any direction or just straight up ?
Another thing i didn´t care about first , but i like to fix as well is blade is not stopping when turning it of .
Certainly after some seconds it spins slower and then stops , but we do use same machine at worksite and it stops pretty much immediately .
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated , thanks in advance !!!
Lots of greetings from Germany
