Question about electric motor ratings Answered
So, lucky me, I curb surfed a table saw last friday, I was going to part it, but my wonderful wife suggested that I could benefit from an extra saw. So deciding to fix it up, I looked over the motor rating, and was left with a question. The motor is rated at 1&1/2 Hp 110v 18 amps. So my question, When is it 18 amps? Start up? Running? Stall? I ask because my breakers are 20 amp, kinda close there for comfort, and no re wiring for 220 right now is not an option.
