Finally, after about three years of drooling at pictures, I finally got a Rikon Deluxe 14" Band Saw.
Haven't even started to assemble it yet, the motor comes wired for 110 V, but can be easily rewired for 230 V.
My shop (read that as the wife's ex-garage) has two seperate 20 A dedicated lines run into it. As the breaker panel is just on the other side of the wall, another line (230 V )will be easy.
Now to the question. Is there any significant difference (other than the lower electric use) between these two voltages. I mean will the motor run better at the higher voltage, or any other reliviant factors.
Once I get this puppy assembled, I'll let you guys know how it performs.
BTW, it has two speeds, when do I change from 1145ft/min to 2950ft/min.
