I placed my order, then had to call back to get the Circuit breaker for 110, the circuit breaker didn’t come with the order and it was wired with the 220 cord. I removed the cord and wired with a 110 just like it was, will it be OK to fire it up? Being that its going from 220 to 110 but I want to be sure? Part of the shipment is suppose to get here today but they never changed the order online as far as the breaker showing up on the order? Do the breakers look different or marked different , I have not pulled it but will. I just got the saw yesterday and have it put together, it looks like a well built machine!

Are you sure you really want to go from 220 to 110? Now that I’ve converted my SS from 110 to 220 I’ll never go back. My saw runs a lot better now. Starts up faster and cuts through anything I’ve pushed through it like butter.

I don’t have 220 in my garage and it would be a pretty long run to get it there. I have a detached garage, and the circuit breaker box could not be further from it so I am pretty much stuck with 110

How far is the run to the circuit breaker? Conduit isn’t too bad, its the 220 wire that can get a bit pricey.

gillyd, to run from the box to the garage would take about 200’ of wire.

A real wood worker would move his garage closer to the breaker box just for 220 ;) JK!

If the motor is noticably slow starting, it is hard on it and will eventually damage it due to low voltage. If that happens, you may need to put the saw in the bedrom and your bed in the shop ;-))

LOL , the thing seems fine on 110 , and I am sure would be better on 220 but for now 110 will have to do.Waiting for the wood store to open so I can go pick up a load of cherry to get busy on the crib Iam building for my first Grand baby coming in July.

Cant wait for the grand baby daughter, she is due in July. I made some progress on the crib this week because I have been off work. I love the new saw but using the dado blade has a glitch. There is barely enough room to get it on the saw as the dust shoot is really close to the arbor. I actually have to use a pry bar to make room. Other than that the thing has been perfect and is a joy to use.

Mojo, you REALLY should pay attention to what Topa is saying and re-wire the garage at the soonest opportunity for the sake of your equipment. If not, then just let us know when to change your name to NoGo.

THIRD one already? They haven’t figured out what causes that yet, have they? LOL

Thanks for the update on the saw.
