Gshepherd: I had a feeling I might not be the only one who pushes the limits, but hey it was a calculated risk :) I say that having pushed a 30” re-saw past the limits many years ago. I can remember it seeming like a lot of time to review my mistake while watching that blade pile up on the table…. jumping away. And how quiet my boss was after that incident… and not the good kind of quiet. But now I’m the boss so saw away. That saw is now wired for 220. That project was for a bed frame. We sawed the sides off of a single re claimed, hand hewn longleaf pine post (cut in half in the video, and note the re-saw post!!) and constructed the bed frame. It cleared the throat by 1/4” with the sled attached. I got an order for a second bed from the same client. I should have videoed that to show how much less it bogged down wired for 220.
