    200d uneven brushes

    I was just inspecting my brushes when I noticed that all of them are slightly tapered side to side toward the generator. One set is worse than the rest with maybe 3/16" of uneven wear. Its welding fine, but Im not sure if this is common, or a symptom of poor brush rack alignment or something similar. Any thoughts?

    Have seen this before. I suspect it starts due to the one or more brush springs being a little offset from center causing the brush to wear sideways.

    This one was still welding too believe it or not.

    Thanks, that makes me feel better. Next set of brushes Im gonna try to figure out a spacer between the brushes to hold them true.

    Mmmm I'd be careful there. Could easily create a situation that causes them to hang up. I'd just make sure the springs are straight and centered on each brush.
