At times it seems all manufactures will run out of certain parts, either because of high demand or not enough purchased from one of their vendors or not enough manufactured. For any reason that does nor make your situation any better. However I did speak with the manufacture this morning and they are expecting the brushes any day now.

I mounted dado blades and now I can't get them off. The arbor wrench keeps slipping on the motor side because wrench jaws keep opening wider. I ordered two new wrenches but I'm afraid these will broke open too. Is there another way to loosen the arbor nut?
I have seen in the past some wrenches made from stamped steel. Those arbor nuts can sometimes be a bear to remove. If the new set won't work for you. Try a better quality set of wrenches. You may have to grind the wrench that goes behind the blade to make it fit.

try without the wrench behind the blade by using a piece of wood to get the blades stuck like the old days
The model R4510 is designed to take 6 inch dado blades up to 3/4 inch thick as reported on page 34 of the instruction manual. You also need to make your own throat plate for whatever thickness dado you use.
well try not to leave your precious tools outdoors but if you have to you can wrap it up with 2 tarps, one wrapping the saw from the bottom and one from the top, or try with like a motorcycle cover or something similar
I can't get riving knife back in alignment. What's the secret? Every time I think I'm there, between adjusting the bolts and set screws, when I tighten down on the bolts as hard as they were when I bought it new, the knife goes out of alignment. Also, should the knife be centered on the blade or should it be biased to the side away from the rip fence?
