The coin size discs are a common method to remove/insert the brushes.

I would remove them. They may have decent length left. The problem may be the commutator having oxidized over time. CAREFULLY try cleaning and light sanding with a fine grit paper. You may need to remove the rotor for better access.

Most roller guides are model specific due to each manufacturer having different dimensions.

Take a look at an earlier thread on bandsaw fences.


I would check the tuning of your saw before you use a fence since it may not track straight. This Alex Snodgrass video is the best I have seen. It helped me improve the performance of my bandsaw.
