Triton Circular Saw Refurbishment E2

Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;
You will look at where they were,
And they will not be there.

Psalm 37:10

Is that why 50 somethings like workshops? We feel safe and secure whilst there, with the wicked firmly excluded and out of mind. Who are “the wicked” though? Is it “them”? What if it’s you and me? How can we tell?

Something to ponder over whilst up to the elbows in Circular Saw Guts.

With the base removed, it’s time to get at the motor. With the inner blade clamp ring removed…

…we can get at this circlip…

Taking care with the spring, the guard just slides off…

This pesky bolt – mentioned in the previous post – can come out now…

Working progressively inwards (duh) the hub bolts are removed and the hub taken off. Watch out for the shims, they’re a bit flimsy and easily damaged…

There’s these plates to be removed next…

…then the main body bolts can be undone and the motor section slid out…

The armature can then be slid out of the rest of the motor. The clamp needs photographed so that it is replaced properly…

To get the coils out, we need to take the handle section – containing the trigger assembly – apart. Remove this plastic spacer…

Undo the screws and carefully prise the handle apart…

Get to work with the hoover and a brush to get rid of as much of the dust as possible, then you can see what’s what with the wiring…

I took plenty of pictures at this point, not just of the connections…

…but how it’s packed in as well…

Unscrew these two bolts..

…take the brushes out…

…push off the two coil spring brush connectors with a long screwdriver…

…then the coil assembly can be slid out. At first I couldn’t see how to achieve this, but eventually I found that I could just put my fingers in, push out centripetally – with the main plastic body securely held – and pull it out. It was a tight fit and I had to be always mindful of the wires…

That’s disassembly completed.

Next, cleaning…
