Old power tool issue, fixable?

ok i worded it bad before as ive been between jobs. the part you point at is the commutator. the carbon brushes are serviceable parts that press onto that. they are what those wires were connected too. they provide power to the armature to make the motor work. take out the carbon brushes and you should be able to slide the armature out. thats normally how it would work

the part with the green arrow maybe a holder for the carbon brushes it might unclip to make servicing the tool easier.

Morning,

Its definitely 110v as its got a yellow lead and I have to use a transformer, plus it says 110v on the tool :)

I tried removing the carbon brushes and the brush holder (16) at the back of the machine but the armature still didn't seem to want to come out. The part 64 is called a locking ring apparently so my guess is that needs to be removed as well, but I couldn't figure out how to do that last night although I recon its just very tight and I will have to use something to grip both bits and counter turn. If anyone has a good method without damaging I'm all ears.

Cheers for the help. Managed to get the armature off just by pulling it hard enough as it was around some rubber at the end. The hard part not now finding the correct armature which I can't seem to find as its an older model. Oh well worth a try.

Cheers

another thought
choose the same model from ebay spares or repairs and choose one with a different fault
