I read... somewhere... about this cool setup a fellow did w/his TS. He had a 220v plug mounted on the side of the saw cabinet, and a pigtail that went from the mag switch to the plug. When he was changing blades, etc. it was very easy to unplug the saw. Additionally, "upstream" in the cabinet mounted outlet, he had taken 1 leg of the 220 and mounted a small shielded light and switch on the inside of the saw cabinet, so he could have a better look-see when he dropped an arbor nut, etc.... The saw itself would be unplugged but he still had 110 hot to check things out.
Okay, so far, so good... What I am wondering, is if you took things a bit further, could you set up a 110 power outlet on the saw from the 220v circuit? It would be real handy having a 110 outlet right on the saw in the middle of the shop, without an additional power cord.
After thinking about this, I put on my safety hat. I've been doing that a LOT more lately... would pulling 110 off of one side of the 220 create any trouble, i.e., some sort of "disturbance in the force"... (Luke....luke.... I am your FATHER!!!) Also, what about the circuit breaker? A small 60 lamp might not cause trouble. However, a larger load, or any load using this set up would essentially be "unprotected" as a 110v overload may/may not trip the 220 breaker? Is there a safe way to set this up? Is it smart? Does this Morris Chair make my butt look fat?
Any help with those FAMILIAR would be most appreciated....
