Outstanding product! It tamed my jump start miter saw into a soft start miter. Thank you,

Great staff

I was need it long time ago. This device working very good. Grinding disk now I can start safety one hand. Necessary staff in every working place

Fixed my cheap 10" Craftsman from sounding like a bomb going off

It now purrs like a kitten when you start it up. These cheap table saws are lacking everything these days. This was a super simple and affordable solution.


Too risky for other people’s not having clear understanding and dangerous around wood shops that might cause fires. And part isn’t refundable..I’m just not happy.. for my own research I ask few woodworkers on if they knew if their table saw, drill press, planers or the likes if they had brushes, what I found most said ‘oh I have no idea’.... so it’s risky

Hi Ralph, I'm sorry that you are not happy with our product. We try to make it VERY clear how to properly identify your power tool motor as compatible or not, and we highly recommend that you contact us beforehand if you are not confident in doing so. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a refund for products that are damaged as a result of misuse or operator error.
