Well we settled on $220 so I grabbed the saw this morning. Super pumped about it! The picture used in the posting was obviously a bit old cause there’s a little more rust. So.. first things first, how do I go about cleaning this bad boy up?? Maybe even steps beyond the rust. Do I need to do any lubricating?

Secondly, and most importantly, the starting issue. I plugged it in (wired for 120) and turned it on. It just makes a hum noise but the blade barely rotates. I can give the blade a push with a scrap piece of wood and then the motor is able to get up to full speed. Boy is it smooth! Head and shoulders above my no-name portable ts. Where do I start with diagnostics on the starting? I’m fairly handy, but my experience is mainly with small engines such as lawn mowers, tillers, etc.
