SIP 01332 owners. How have you wired-in your saws? I've just ordered one of these saws, delivery is 1 week plus, so I'm hoping I can prepare the electrical supply before the saw arrives.
Do you use 13A, 15A(round pin) or 16A(trade) sockets?

Not got one but looking at power rating of motor - the standard uk 3 pin plug (probably supplied with the unit) should be ok.

Please make sure you have the socket outlet protected with an RCD! These cost a couple of quid (£~9) but will save your life!

If its a garage or a workshop - consider fitting a small RCD protected consumer unit - that way you won't forget to use it!
Part P of building regs applies to wiring in garages / workshops!

Thanks for that
I will check to see if the consumer unit in the garage is RCD protected.
The ad for the machine states 16A, that's why I was asking about wiring it in.

My SIP table saw runs quite happily off a normal 13 amp plug. It is the starting load that might blow the fuse. But if everything is set up properly with no tight spots or the drive belt too tight it should be OK :lol: :lol:

Thanks Les
In that case I don't need to get any electrical work done in the garage :)
The consumer unit is already RCD protected
