Years ago I put a 1.5 hp Craftsman motor (220 v.) on my TS. It was the open/drip proof style. It did have a tendency to occasionally get a crumb of dust in between the contact points in the saw’s starter mechanism. I’d have to partially disassemble it to get that little crumb out before it would start up again. Happened maybe a half dozen times or so over a period of years. Otherwise, I never had any issues with that type of motor.
