Re: First Table saw

It sounds like you are setting yourself up to a professional woodworker. If that is the case, invest in professional level machines. They will last a long time if you take care of them. You will want that electrical upgrade to be able to handle other pro level machines. A jointer and a planer is a must for furniture making, so keep that in mind.

In my home shop I have a Saw Stop Professional 3hp table saw, a 15" Powermatic surface planer, and an 8" Powermatic Jointer.

How is that possible? 15 amps @ 120 volts wold only produce 2.4 H.P. with a 100% efficient motor.

Amazing since it takes 240V to develop 3 HP in a table saw motor, and 5 HP is only possible with three phase power. They have broken the laws of electricity.

Re: First Table saw

First a correction. I have the industrial version of the SawStop.

To add, I can get a single phase 5 hp motor for my Saw Stop. I do need 3 phase for the 7 hp though. I'm not sure how they come up with the rating on the motors, but 5 hp single phase is common for saws.

That is pretty much what I found when I bought my shop (new, professional grade machines ). 110 will get you to about 1.5 HP on a good day.

We have been talking about single phase saws. The question is on the size and still use a on 120 volt circuit.

Re: First Table saw

JK how many RPM'S does the 4000 have for NO load,,,,3600 or so ?

The New Bosch GTS1031 has 5000 RPM'S NO load....She's a screamer but has a 18" limited ripping Capacity. Yours probably has 29/30"

In my opinion if you want to Fly Coach get a Bosch. If you want to FLY 1st Class with the Big Dogs go with Delta or Jet.

Just a heads up Delta was sold off from Stanley/Black&Decker to a Tiawan-Ezee company in 2011.Who knows what the future/quality of the tools will be in the end. When Delta was owned by Pentair there tools were the best in the Industry. Reel WORK HORSES.
