Do not plug that saw in w/o replacing plug. If you're not sure how to
wire it then cut off the plug with a bit of the original cord
attached, go get a new plug(best quality available), and wire it by
looking at old plug.
Thanks, guys, for all the responses to my query about fixing the plug
on my table saw.
The snide comments about my abilities to use the saw if I couldn't
change the plug end were especially helpful.
But a genuine nod of apprecation to those of you who took the time to
answer my question earnestly and assist me to fix the problem myself.
Of course I was capable of fixing it with a little instruction. I bet
some of you guys even had to have somebody show you the first time how
to change the oil in your car. But did that keep you from driving it
until you learned?
Call me crazy, but I've always been just a little skittish around
electricity ever since I watched a friend arc himself to the emergency
room (after we put out the fire on his head). For me there's just
something about not really understanding it and being able to see it
that makes me nervous. I can see a spinning saw blade, understand how
it cuts, and watch to keep my fingers well clear. Not the same with
In the end, no real offense taken. Thanks again to those of you who
helped me out. If I can ever return the favor. . .
