Anyone could help me with this issue I’m having? I bought this Delta 10” contactor table saw from an old retired carpenter. I turned it on and and can’t even cut through a 1/2” plywood. The motor seem to have no strenght. It was wired for 220..and since I don’t have 220 in my workshop, I wired it for 110. Can that be the problem ? it does say on the motor that it can be use on 110 or 220

Sounds like it’s wired incorrectly, has a bad capacitor, and/or a very loose belt. Did you follow the wiring schematic that’s usually found on the inside of the wire junction box?

I think Scott has it…did you follow the schematic on the motor plate?

Certainly could be wired wrong. Also, are you using a good sharp blade and is it installed the right way :) You’d be suprised how many folks have posted a (slap the forhead moment) when they realized the blade was turned around backwards.

Did you see it run at 220v at one point?
