So I had a long carve on the machine last week and paused it overnight when I returned in the morning my Dewalt 26200 wouldn’t turn on. Lights on but no spin. A quick check of the forum suggested to check the brushes which I did. They were worn so I replaced them. all systems go.
Then today during a carve I went to check on the machine and noticed that the spindle had stopped again but the carve was still going through the motions. It did appear to have lifted the router up to its safe height though? Is this a feature? I just didn’t think the Xcarve had any awareness of the state of the router?
How has this happened?
For the record I think my replacement brushes were bad, one of them when I took it out wasn’t smooth like the other and had a charcoal burned texture to it making me think it wasn’t aligned correctly in the machine. Its likely as I could only source generic carbon brushes and had to sand them down to fit.
Anyway I just wondered if anyone had any insight on how come the machine seemed to have saved itself when the spindle stopped.
