i have a sears miter saw and i need to disable the electric brake,sometimes brake works and somtimes it doesnt,i do a lot of rapid wood cuts, and it would be better to keep the blade turning instead of brake stopping it and then motor spinning blade back up to speed.would save me some time and less wear on motor and should save some electricity.this type brake just feeds power to motor in reverse.

disconnecting one wire from the switch will do it. i don't remember which one, sorry

It's the wire that still allows the motor to run if it's disconnected. :). Not trying to be funny here, but it is just a single wire, and a pretty easy test to see which one. Don't leave the bare end floating around loose, of course.
