The C’man RAS that I had did not have a capacitor (at least none that I could ever find). I think it was a repulsion/induction motor. Was an Emerson-built saw I bought in 1978. Sold it just 6 years ago for almost what I paid.
Good idea to blow it out well, and check for any stiffness in the bearings.
Mine was a good saw once set properly.
The RAS takes a lot of bad raps, but mine sure did a lot of work for me.
They do need good blades.
