Sears table saw

I have an older table saw that i bought for $25.00 at a garage sale. the problem is that it is 240 volt/single phase, and i do not have , nor can i run 240 to my garage ( not enough free space in my breaker box) . it is a craftsman saw.
can it ( the motor ) be converted from 240 volt to 110 volt ,and if not, where might i find a 110 vol;t motor to fit it?

    i am sorry but i don't have experience with table saws, i am sure that if you were able to change it to 110v it would have 220/110 on the motor somewhere.

Buy a new 110v motor.Tho the current will higher and get a motor with the horse power and same motor base # so that the mounting holes and the shaft size and position match the old motor.

Why not install a few mini-breakers in the panel to give you more space. You probably won't be using this saw 24/7, right?

How to wire a GE timer switch, model 56922, to my 220v hot water heater, using 2-#10 awg with ground?


You should have received a booklet or manual for the timer unless you got it third party, used, etc.

Anyway, here's a link to the PDF manual for this timer:
http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/manual-downloads/applications/DocumentLibraryManager/upload/15087-15207-56922-Manual-eng.pdf

From what you described, it sounds like you want to wire the timer using a 240 volt, single phase wiring system.

First, download and print out the manual.

Make sure all power is off. Pay VERY close attention to the switch settings in the timer as to how to set them to run the timer motor on 240 volts. If you want to use 240 volts, then set the switches to the settings shown in the CENTER drawing or the one that's labeled 208~240VAC for the timer motor.

After you verify that, see the schematic in the manual that is located in the far bottom right-hand corner of the page and is labeled 208/240/277V Timer, 208/240/277V Load, Double Break wired as single throw.

The labels L1 and L2 mean the power coming into the timer. L1 and L2 should be one leg each of the power coming from a 240 volt circuit breaker in your power panel rated for the duty. The heater should be the only thing on the circuit. The little box on the right labeled Load means your hot water heater.

The ground wire (green) should be connected to the ground lug inside the heater connection box or secured to the metal part of the box. Attach and secure the other end to the timer case or mounting box which should also be grounded.

Set the timer trip switches where you want them.

Double-check all connections before applying power. Check the timer later to be sure it's running and keeping time.

If you are not comfortable performing this type of work, it would be dvisable to hire a competent electrician to do the work.

My baseboard heaters humm while turned off. Not sure if this matters, but I believe that they are apox. 20+ years old. They work great when they are on, but I use my wood stove to save my power bill and...


I am assuming we are talking about a home or other domestic dwelling...

You didn't say what voltage the heaters operate on, but if you hear humming, then something is probably using power somewhere.

Go to the fuse or breaker panel and turn off the power to the heaters and see if the humming stops - it should.

Sometimes a relay gets stuck after several years and the heaters are "single phasing", or operating on 1/2 of the circuit. Most baseboard heaters (in the USA) are 220-240 volt so you can check to see if any power is present after the heating relay after the thermostat is off.

The problem could also be the thermostat itself especially if it operates on what is known as "line voltage." In this case, there probably won't be a heating relay. Again, check for power on the load side of the thermostat after you have turned it to its coldest setting and you are certain that the heat is off. Place a volt meter lead from each of the hot terminals to ground. No power should be present (going to the heaters). If power is there at either terminal then the T-stat is defective.

NOTE - if you are not familiar or comfortable with this type of work, it's best to call a licensed electrician to help.

NO! water where it might end up in the heating element and the base section should not ever be submerged for cleaning, only the removable crockery.

What AC power supply do I need to use a Cricut Expression die cutter in Austraila? what voltage and what size plug?


if that has an ac power supply there should be a d/c voltage and current on the label. you need an adapter of the same voltage/current that uses a 220 ac plug. i may add i'm in australia (from canada) and my laptop adapter label states it will run from 100 to 240 volts. i picked up an adapter at **** smiths to change the plug from aussie to north american and it's fine.

I would like (need!!) to create an extention cord for a pool heater (UK) 3000w, 220/240v (13-14 amp). I want to plug it into the 220/240v, 30 amp dryer line. (My only 220/240 line and am unable install...


Use 12/3 gauge rubber or plastic insulation rated for 500 to 600 volts and extend the cable for entire length--don't make a short extension of the existing heater cable. If the total length is over about 4 meters then go with 10/3 cable for safety. The green wire is for the ground pin and the two slanted pins go to 220/240 voltage. Hook the heater end the same as the original cable. That should satisfy any local-disconnect regulations (at least in the states).
