    Glad you found someone near you. When I first started I had 3 users in the area... ChrisAlb a temporarily retired CW user doing Over the Road Trucking now was real close. We met another user in a Church Parking Lot and did a Sand Paper Belt Swap on the 3rd guy's machine. He has since also retired. WE were all NEW once....

    I posted on the Facebook page too if anyone was in your area to check the forum here.

    Good Luck,

    As far as I know, the CX motor is exactly the same as the old motors except that the double fan was replaced by a single fan. Hence quieter. A little less load?

    Any chance LHR is having a problem with the Brush supplier and the brushes are softer and wearing out sooner...? Traditionally we got 250 cut hours... What it the current on the brushes lasting in the CX?

    Al , we have had some brushes that were terrible, I noticed the carbon dust in the dust collector bag right away. This was some time ago and if I remember right CarveWright did say something about it. I usually order brushes 10 sets at a time so I may run into some more if I haven't rotated through them.
