Hi folks. Just new to the forum.

I have a 2012nb makita thicknesser which has been working fine but the motor has just started running erratically, slowing down slightly and then speeding up randomly. I’ve checked the brushes and they look fine. Anyone have any thoughts what else it might be?

Cheers

Loose connection in mains plug.
loose connection at other end of mains wire.
loose connection on machine switch.
build up of wood dust around chains, sprockets, gears.

eliminate those and let us know how you got on.
