Yup I already installed the T23999 breaker at the switch.

I bought some 12/3 wire from Home Depot tonight, needed to make an extension cord anyway. The Grizzly tech I spoke to said I should bypass the switch by wiring the motor directly to this cord. The wires leading to the saw motor at the switch have the standard spade connectors on them. I don’t have anything to connect that to my new wire. I’d rather not cut those off because I don’t have new spades to put back on when I’m done. Anyone have any idea how I can tie this into my new wire? My first thought is just to tie it together temporarily with electrical tape, but I dunno, that seems way wrong.

@thedude50 – I’ve got SquareD breakers in my panel. The reason I don’t have a 220 is because when I first had these 2 20 amp circuits installed, there were 2 spots left and I didn’t see myself getting any 220 machines. I don’t plan on being in this little space much longer (only 1/2 of a 2 car garage) and I’m out of room for any more tools, so it didn’t seem worth the cost to me to have someone install a couple of tandem breakers to make room for a 220, especially when this saw will run on either. If I had to do it all over agian, yeah I probably would have done it differently, but what’s done is done.
