Voltage drop is the killer of table saws. You have to be sure you have a circuit that can provide 20 amps with very little voltage drop, otherwise the saw is sure to burn itself up cutting tough wood. If your son is using a 15 amp/AWG14 circuit, he'll probably burn it out again. 12 gauge wire is a minimum, and if the saw is in an outbuilding, the feed to the building needs to be big enough supply 20 amps with minimal voltage drop.

Which may be true but has nothing to do with the matter at hand. This is an inexpensive direct drive saw, probably rated 15 amps @ 120 volts. Try to feed it with an undersized circuit and it's going to burn up.
