Default Look around.

Make some calls to your local tool repair companies. They always have old parts and stuff folks never pick up. We had one close nearby and they had a tool sale, with lots of old stuff for cheap.
Happy hunting.

I have another question, looking for ideas. I rent a shop, @ 20' W X 40' L X 25' H. Since I'm renting don't want to put alot of money into insulating/finishing the whole structure. I want to build a 10' W x 16' L X 10' H insulated workshop structure that can roll straight in and out of the shop. Straight in and straight out. nothing more. Trying to figure out industrial/heavy duty casters? Go kart/ATV tires on modified axles? maybe just iron pipes fabricated with tire rims? Looking for ideas to stimulate the brain. Simple but works!

Default Not givin up...

Try http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/milwaukee/5650_452-19550/
for the router.
Try www.grainger.com and type in casters for the shed.
I'm sure there are other ideas for the shed. Pieces of pipe are the least expensive route.

Harbor Freight has some pretty cheap casters.

You may have a retail store near you.

Thanks guys. The router info is close, not exact but it gives me a little time frame to work with. The casters are good too, just looking for more ideas. Thanks again.

What is the problem with it? Brush replacement is a common maintenance item for an old tool and there are generic replacements available, You may not need that particular OEM part if thats your problem.
