the motor is smoking on this belt sander, not the belt, just the motor, it has a burning smell.
is this caused by the motor being old, is the ceramic insulation melting off the wires, or is there possibly sawdust on the wires that is burning off?
I've already taken the motor apart twice to clean the switch, I'm going to try to do it again and see if I can blow off any sawdust that might be caked on the motor wire wrapping parts.
Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this, and if it's just time to buy a new sander....?
