Re: Repair a power tool with a simple brush change

Great trick about the brushes. The other point that tickled my attention is the electric brake. I have a recent Makita 10" miter saw and it performs beautifully but the electric brake did not work long; how do I fix it?

Re: 2014 Cartouche Award Winner Announced

Extraordinary work, typical of the famous veneering style developed under Louis XIV, both tables being produced with a single cutting of veneer.
The best one is called '' partie'' and the second best ''contre-partie'' as in ''part', and '' counter-part''.
This style was carried over to some of Louis XV furniture and the gilt bronze accents are typical of it.
One thing is certain though is that this is NOT Louis Philippe style, which is much later, NOT ornate, usually cherry, and was the first Louis style that was serially produced.
Just to get all those Louis sorted out.
Nonetheless, the work is outstanding and few people have tackled this technique since Louis XV.
