Fixed, I think?

The replacement brushes for my circular saw arrived from the UK yesterday (ridiculous isn't it, that parts for a saw engineered and manufactured in Australia are only available from a UK seller...). I've installed them and the saw runs fine, but I'm not sure whether it's right - I don't remember seeing it arc this much before, but then I've never paid it any attention either.

This is with the new brushes in. With the old ones it sparked about twice the size, and gave an unhappy smell...

If anyone knows whether this is normal or not, I'd be interested to hear before I blow this thing up for good!
