    You can't kill them. they reign forever... As long as you have a belt to fit, they are always at hand.

    "this thing still operates and runs."

    Time to terminate. With extreme prejudice!

    I've got an ancient one that arcs so much I barely need shoplights...

    I'm told they started making better ones several years ago...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Similar thing happened here a few months a go with my big Makita belt sander.

    I was in the shop and turned on the sander but it wouldn't work. I changed the fuse in the plug and plugged it back in. The sander FLEW off the bench straight into my pride and joy!

    Ouch!

    It's always a good idea to make sure you've not left the trigger locked on...
