And your PM 64 is plenty powerful for a hobbyist woodworker. Unless you’re ripping 100 board feet of 8/4 Hard Maple, I think you’ll find the saw performs quite well. A good quality blade and well tuned saw are essential parts of the formula. If your Ridgid was 1/8” out, that is a lot. Easily 5x the ideal.

If you have the option, I would put a 220v receptacle in and run the saw on 220v.

I love my PM 63. It does everything I ask of it, and does it well.
