For whatever it’s worth, here’s a picture of the box as it arrived to me. I think UPS routed it through Afghanistan!

I did rewire the saw for 110. Checked the plug, that looks right, the breaker at the swtich has been swapped with from the stock 10 amp to the Grizzly supplied 20 amp and the jumpers on the motor look correct (there’s really not much to it). Unfortunatly, I don’t have a clamp on meter so I don’t think I can measure the amp draw during startup. I’ve got a decent multimeter, honestly I don’t really know how to use it :)

@JesseTutt, when you say measure the voltage at the recepticle, are you talking about the voltage at the outlet (on the same circuit) or something on the machine? Also I think that’s a good idea on the belt. There’s no possibility of damaging the machine if I run it without the belt, right? I’ve read in a lot of places if I try to run my dust collector without the impeller, bad things can happen.

Gonna give Grizzly a call in a little bit to see what they say about all this.
