the saw control circuit is most likely run off of only one leg of the 220 or 110 anyway. even if the nameplate says it cant be wired for 110 it can. It is easy to remove all doubt if you read the nameplate. that will tell you the HP and the current requirements. If at more than 20 amps in most instances you will have to pull a new circuit and may as well go 220 for that. If less than 20 amps you have a chance and need to check the breaker for the circuit you intend to use. For the most part accept for bedrooms circuits with outlets have been 20 amp circuits. as several have said check the motor plate!
