I am interested in purchasing a table saw from Grizzly which comes pre-wired to 220 but can be re-wired to 110. Looking at the manual, it looks very simple to do but I do not have much electrical experience and am nervous. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a saw and then ruin it.

The manual is located here: Page 71 is the wiring diagram:

I think for the plug I’ll just need to cut off the current plug, purchase a nema 5-20 plug and connect the 3 wires to it.

For the motor, In the motor junction box, I’ll just need to remove the jumper between White/Blue and install a jumper between Red/White and Blue/Black.

Is that all? It seems simple enough for me to do and not hire an electrician.

Can someone with experience please give me some advise/recommendations? I think I’m missing something.

that’s about it.

don’t forget to replace the motor overload … they call it a “circuit breaker” in their manual.

make sure all of your electrical connections are tight.

Yup! its just as easy also for changing the motor direction. Something I had to do when I bought my Z series table saw.

Most likely both jumpers are on the middle position so you probably won’t need to make one even
