Brush slotting

I just got a brush slotter to start messing around with. I'd like to ask if there are any good slotting patterns and what not. I will be using them on a stock motor. Thanks.

Best cuts I have tried for stock motors is to either drill a small hole in the center of the brush or use the slotter to remove about 1/32-1/16 of the brush leading edge. Removing some of the brush leading edge is a way to simulate advanced timing.

no more than an 1/8th inch. I drill mine with a 1/16th bit with my fingers just deep enough to have created an actual wall that makes the hole.

I dont know if anyone else has tried this when they drill a hole in the brush... But have you filled it with comm drops then ran it? I like it alot, it reduces friction big time!

So will the hole help punch? That's what I want the most? What can I do with the slotter? I '-' cut, or '+'? Or something else

dont slot, drill or cut serrated brushes, you will lose power. only try it on full face brushes.

uuuuhhhh I think you mean *trailing* edge (since timing is in the same direction as rotation). You'll also loose a bit of torque that way.
