Well, I might have been beaten. I plugged the saw in today, after all this work, and nothing. The capacitor starting system has problems. So, unless I can get it fixed or replaced somehow (bringing it into an electric motor repair place that specializes in this), the saw is dead. Too many proprietary parts to be able to cobble something up. Stand by, we are having technical difficulties. We are hoping it can be overcome somehow.
