Ok I’ll throw my 2cw in on this. If lights dimming I’d say you scuking a lot of power there for the 1.5 115v line ok, but 2” is not anyhting real hard. Could be speed and you are going to fast. Could be your blade. Is it new or recently sharpened. Does it have a lot of crap on it and need a good cleainging?

Tooth count could be an issue as well thats a lot for ripping thicker stock. As others stated an out of aligned blade/fence can do it.

I like my forrest 20T for pure ripping thick stock (12/4), and WWII 40T for all others. I’ve cut 12/4 no issues but thats with more hp and slowing it down.
