DIY Carbon brush
I know more than a few of us that have ‘cheap’ electric tools. I bought my grinder at HB more than a few years back and have been quite happy with it. No, its not a Dewalt or Milwaukee, but I figure 5 years of hard use, I more than got my money out of the thing.
All the grinding and cutting that I have been doing lately finally took its toll on that tool. The brushes wore out and of course that means the grinder became a paperweight. Digging around, I found brushes from the HB site, but at $4 for the brushes and over $20 in shipping, I figured I would try something else first.
I bought these carbon rods from Budget casting supply a few years back
