I agree that it’s more saw than I need, but I am anxious to upgrade from my brother’s borrowed saw (Ryobi BT3000) to a saw with repeatability and accuracy. That little Ryobi has to be checked for square and alignment every time the saw is turned off and reset.

As for the amperage draw, I do have a 100A sub-panel in the shop, and since I am normally the only one in that shop, I will only be using lights and the saw at one time (and maybe a radio). I would have to get an electrician to add a 220-V circuit to the panel. I did ask the owner to verify how the motor is wired up. If it’s 3-phase, I will probably not be interested.

Thanks for the quick feedback.
