Description Technical Specs
This Foredom® MP117P brush pair is specifically designed to ensure optimal performance and extend the life of your motor. Worn brushes can reduce motor speed and efficiency. Replace your brushes with this high-quality Foredom® part to restore power and performance. Bring your favorite Foredom® tool back to life! Motor brush pairs are available for discontinued Series R, EE, GG, and MMG motors, both in 115 Volt and 230 Volt variants. Additionally, brushes are also offered for 230 Volt C, DD, and MM motors. Please refer to the details for specific information.

Pair of motor brushes for these discontinued motors:

  • Series R and RB (115 Volt and 230 Volt).
  • Series EE, GG, and MMG motors (115 Volt and 230 Volt).
  • Series CC, DD, and MM motors (230 Volt).
Brushes should be checked for wear periodically. When new, they are approximately 3/4″ long. Replace them when they have worn to 1/4″. Be sure to replace both motor brushes even if one of them is less worn than the other.

Learn More About Motor Brushes:

All Foredom electric motors are of the 2-pole type and use one set of brushes, with one on each side of the motor case, opposite the shaft end. The brushes are installed in brush holders, which are copper or brass tubes encased in plastic, with shallow plastic screw caps to retain and provide access to the brushes. The leads from the motor power cord are connected to the metal brush tubes, from which current flows into the brushes. A brush consists principally of a length of compressed graphite, with carefully controlled characteristics to provide the lowest possible resistance, low friction, and long life. A flexible copper pigtail is embedded in the brush, terminated in a U or disc terminal. The pigtail is surrounded by a coil spring. The free end of the brush is curved to match the curvature of the commutator. When the brush is inserted in the brush holder and the screw cap is in place, the spring maintains proper brush pressure on the commutator as the brush wears, and the pigtail terminal contacts the inner metal tube to provide a current path to the brush.
