It died, & this time it isn't a simple change of carbon brushes, so what is second most likely fixable fault please folks?

Model dremel 300 (light usage as I have 2 drills of different makes in order to not overheat the dremel).

One of the biggest culprit on the 200 and 300 series are the speed control lever.

I was unable to repair mine but did get it to stay on full speed.

Hope that works Gus. The only problem I have had is with worn out brushes, so I am afraid I don't have anything else to suggest.

Clearly I'm being struck down in small ways becaue I live so vicariously Ken! ...sucks to be me right now I tell thee!

Anyhow on a positive note the new speed controller turned up today, time to get my hands dirty ...then when I fail get the wife to fix it!
