I have an old Craftsman saw that does OK for me except when I start ripping 8/4 hardwoods like Walnut, Hard Maple or Jatoba. I’m thinking I could just up-size the motor. This wouldn’t be a big job at all (assuming I can find a motor at a decent price). My question; is there anything to look out for that I’m not thinking about?

Thanks in advance for any valuable input you could provide. Kevin
