Hey man, I was just reading you response to DannyBoy about an old sabre saw and you had stated that you have one with a bad armature commutator. I just wanted to let you know that you might be able to take the armature to an Automotive Starter and Alternator/Generator shop, or an Electric Motor Repair shop if there’s one close to you, and they can probably rewind the armature for you and replace the commutator. When I was in high school and a few years after I worked for an armature shop and rewound armatures, we did everything from shrimp boat armatures to trolling motor armatures to 18 wheel truck armatures. There is also a good chance that if you can find an armature sop that has been around a while they might actually have an armature that they have rewound in stock or have a used commutator that they could use to fix your’s. I did all kinds of oddball armatures when I worked there, but they closed that shop a few years ago. I am from the Birmingham, Alabama area and there are at least two shops I can think of that could probably rebuild your armature, Southern Armature Works (205)324-6529 and also Chancey’s Alternator & Starter (205)428-1752. I hope this helps you and I wouldn’t think that it would be expensive to have that armature redone.

Did you hog out the interior with a dado set on your tablesaw? If so, what diameter dado and how deep was the sink cut?

—“Lack of effort will result in failure with amazing predictability” – Me

Hi Bigblockyeti
to answer your question I used a sliding chop saw with a 12” blade. The opening of the sink is 14.5 inches long 10 inches wide and 3 inches deep. The sanding is what took the longest time of the project.
