Have you thought about a phase converter for the saw? For about $200, you can buy a phase converter that will allow you to run 3 ph on a single phase. Give the guys at Grizzly Industrial a call, they can probably help you out and answer some questions you may have. I have installed them for bigger motors 20 hp and up and they work great. Takes a little while for the motor to wind up but saves thousands for a new motor or even more for a electrical service upgrade.
