So I pulled of the fan cover and fan and the centrifugal switch was right there. I pulled it off, got rid of all the dust there (this was on the outside of the motor cover, not inside). After getting it put back together (and learning how it works, which is genius by the way), I fired up the saw and away it went with no problems. I went back out this morning just to make sure it wasn’t some other factor and it started up no problems again.

Short and long is that exelectrician was dead on and now it’s working as well as it ever has. Thanks for all the help and suggestions, everyone.
