    I am looking for spare carbon brushes for a Titan Router model SF1500XP. Can anyone offer any advice?

    Thanks

    As you probably know by now, no direct spares available for any Titan tools or most 'own brand' tools

    Carbon brushes are pretty much interchangeable between brands though so this is an easy one to source (as above, once size has been matched)

    If you have any local tool stores that service on site or offer a repair service, try them, take in old brushes

    These guys are excellent as well and very helpful. They matched up a snapped drive belt for a Titan planner for me, give them a call

    Thanks guys. Managed to source one on eBay. Matched the carbon brush ok but not the terminal.However an easy soldering job will sort that. Surprised that Screwfix sell power tools with no spares back up!

    I'm also looking for spares for my Titan planer thicknesser. I had a bit of a catastrophe with it yesterday resulting in a mangled part that looks too far gone to be straightened out with a hammer and some pliers. I've emailed Screwfix but so far they haven't got back to me.

    :eek:

    How did that happen...:rolleyes:

    Could try Solent Tools, or look on Ebay for one going cheap & use for spares.

    There are several planer thicknessers out there that just a rebranded Titan, parts are identical..

    No point in emailing / conversing with SF re spares for Titan power tools

    Even if they do get back to you, there won’t be any helpful news from them

    In short...... no advice / no spares for anything / no backup / no help / no suggestions / no leads / no nothing

    But in fairness, as diy tools, and for the money, they ain’t bad

    Good luck

    My son and I have just had a go at hammering the thing back into shape. It looks okay but I'm obviously wary of putting it back in the machine and setting it going. I'd much rather get a new part.

    Does anyone know which other planer thicknessers are identical to the Titan one? I think I found some good information on my Titan table saw by finding much more comprehensive stuff on the website of a differently-branded identical saw.

    I'll have a look at the Solent Tools website now, thanks for the link.

    Contact Solent Tools,they will most likely know of one brand that you could use for spares.

    Don't know which Titan you have, but Cotech, Machine Mart,Scheppach,Charnwood, maybe SIP, to name a few with very similar/identical models.

    Clarke CPT800 & Titan TTB579PLN are probably made in same factory,so you might find Clarke spares if available they would most likely fit.

    I've just found the Clarke CPT800 manual and there's a helpful exploded diagram of the machine in that one. It looks like the part is called a "sheet metal deflector", but there isn't much information on the Internet about what it does or who sells tham. I'll take your advice about contacting Solent Tools. They only have replacement blades and belts for sale on their site but I'll see what they can tell me.

    Just to update on this - having had no luck finding spares I rang Screwfix and they immediately offered to replace the machine or refund me. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with how well they dealt with it. Solved my problem straight away with no quibbling.
