My shop is a small stand-alone shed. It has a 20 amp fuse in it, and I also have circuit breakers in my house. The 20 amp fuse burns every time I cut something like 2.5 inches maple on my table saw with my vac running. (I’m using a thin kerf blade already..)
My table saw is DEWALT DW745 with a 15 Amp motor, and my vac is 6 HP RIDGID WD1450.
amps (A)= 15 and volts (V)=120 then
Grizzly G0715P table saw is a 2 HP machine:
2 HP / .00134 = 1490 watts
1490 watts / 120 V = 12mps
Why does a big hybrid table saw use less electricity than a small contractor saw? If I brought a Grizzly saw, a Harborfreight dust collector, and used a 25 amp fuse, will I have any electrical or safety issues？Thanks.
