Default Com Chipping

The comms on a couple of my motors are chipping, what causes this?
Exsesive heat? Not cut often enough? to light/heavy of brushes?

As the com gets smaller you might run into a problem with them chipping. I am going to guess that it is by the slots seperating the segments, if so you might as well as get a new one.
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I post just to look at my avatar.

Yeah, itís probably just age but if the comms are relatively new and are chipping while you are cutting them, it could also mean your lathe bit is too dull.
