RE: Clear screen

Magnetite is magnetic and wreaks havoc with electric motors. Non-conductive abrasives abound. For the clear screen you can fortunately clean it easily as Rickb suggests.

RE: Clear screen

Joe has been my starter giuy for most of 30 years. I asked him if he ever uses emery cloth to dress commutators. "Sure" he replied. Is it a special type? I inquired... "180 grit". Conclusive answer from a man that makes a living doing it.Steve

RE: Clear screen

"or a commutator stone"

Rick has it right , a couple of bucks at NAPA for the right tool , which works on starters and any DC or universal (with brushes) AC motor you come across.

A broken hacksaw blade rubbed on each insulation seperation will lower it enough to usually get rid of the noise and make the brushes last lots longer.
