First What flew off? the copper on the comm? the wire off the stacks? the comm off the lathe?
Need to know what problem we are fighting here.
If its the copper coming off, then your comm was too thin and you need a new armature.
If the wire has come loose from the armature, same result, replace the Armature.
If the comm is bouncing around then you have either balance issues or your plates aren't square.
I hope I helped a bit..
