    The OP’s saw has a power feed hydraulic table. That, and my suggestion of a vfd for speed control is why I suggested upping the hp. I’d guess 3hp?

    ^^^ yup. Ran one years ago. IIRC, had a two speed gearbox, so an over hp 220v 3ph vfd conversion is feasible. Would arrange pulley ratio for 60 hz to be at 100 sfm on low range

    Load off panel without breaker?

    Another post was commenting on running greater than 60amp 220v 1-P loads off a panel without using a breaker.

    Is this legal? Why would a guy even do this?
