I just purchase a band saw that has a motor that is 100/220 (currently setup for 220) which I figured I would easily add a 220 outlet in my garage or switch to 110. Well, its become a little more difficult than that, I think. I am pretty handy and have done lots of electrical wiring but when it comes to amps/watts and the like, I ain't no Bob Villa (sorry, bad joke).
My problem is, I think, that I am out of empty breaker spaces in my garage's breaker box to add a 220 so I am stuck with 110.
So if I read this right, for 220 I only need 14 amp but for 110, I would have to handle 28 amps.
My question is this: Can I run this motor on the current 20 amp (110) or is there just no way?
Does anyone have an ideas?
