What a difference this makes! It took about twenty minutes to do and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The saw when I turn the power switch on is at full speed almost instantly, when it is at 110V it takes a couple of seconds to get up and going. The only thing I had to purchase was the 220 plug, and 1 additional wire nut (already on hand) and your done. If you have been putting off doing this, move it up on your list you will be extremely happy!

I did the switch from 110 to 220 about 2 years ago on my Contractors table saw and have been very happy also. But from what I have been told is if I had problems at 110 it was more than likely because the 110 circuit I was running on was running other things such as lights and or other outlets. If you run a single 110 outlet on a single apropriate sized breaker and wireing, you can solve the problem of not enough power also. Many people over look this, includeing me at the time.
