I have a 2000 year powermatic table saw. it has a 1 1/2 hp single phase 115 volt motor . the motor nameplate says it draws 15 amps. when I look up a 1 1/2 hp single phase mtr on internet it says it draws 20 amps.
the wire from the motor to the saw switch (3 ft) , and from the switch to the plug (4 ft cord ) that came with the saw is 14 gage.
is this wire too small?
