Hi All – I found an older Powermatic 66 tilting arbor saw that I want to check out being sold at auction. The saw has a 2HP, 3phase, 208-230/460V motor but my garage isn’t wired for 3 phase and I’m trying to figure out if I can use the saw as is with some type of converter or is it better to replace the motor? Also trying to figure out what costs are involved with each option. I’m new to the forum but have read lot of postings about table saws since I’m looking to purchase one and appreciate all the information everyone’s posted. Thanks for any advice!
