When re-assembling, I had to clamp together the bearing housing and motor in a vice while I tapped the 8 housing lugs back over the bearing housing.

Make sure that the circuit board is soldered back onto the motor terminals in exactly the same position as it was before, otherwise the control buttonswill not fit in their sockets, the motor may go backwards or the housing may not fit over the motor.

The motor and circuit board should now slide into the outer shell and the 4 retaining lugs should pop into their recesses.

Press in the power cord socket. Screw down the cord clamp and insert the variable speed gear (make sure it is at the minimum speed setting) Press on the speed dial, keeping it at the minimum speed setting. If you removed the housing without cutting it then there will be no need to seal it.
