So im an amateur wood worker and for over a year ive been using my small jobsite craftsman tablesaw that has 2.7hp 120v 60hz 15amp. This table saw has done everything ive needed it to do it, it can rip down 2x4s without boging down and ive cut small ammounts of hardwood on it. My uncle recently gave me his delta shop master TS350 contractors table saw. Its a nicer biger saw with bigger rip capacity and a better fence system. I thought i got an upgrade but when i tried to do basic things like rip a 2×4 or even smaller pieces of wood it bogs down and cant get through it. Ive tried straightening out the fence and the blade, ive also tried a new blade that was supposed to be better at ripping but the table saw still sucks at cutting. I read somewhere online that this saw only has 1hp. Is there something im missing? Id really like to use this table saw but the small craftsman saw just prefirms so much better that its not worth it. Should i get a new motor for it? Thanks
