I have a craftsman contractor table saw and I use it in an out building that the previous owners built. The saw has a 1 horse capacitor start motor and every time I switch it on all the lights in the shop dim to dark and they slowly flicker back on till the saw gets up and running. I'm also sure that the saw is not running at it's full potential. The wiring that goes out there underground is only 14 guage and it runs for about 85 feet underground. Before anyone tells me to run a new line, I have to say that I really don't want to put any more money in to this house. I am stuck in a bad loan with an underwater mortgage to boot and so far I can not get out. So sinking more money into something that I may lose isn't really appealing. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Do you think the wire should be able to handle the load? I'm just not sure. BTW… the power to the shop is also running through a standard light switch in the garage that controls the whole works. Could this be limiting flow if it is an low amperage switch?
