Question Mitre Saws

I posted this message before. At times when I go to check it out it is there. At other times it does not show on the board.
Why is this? What did I do wrong when I tried to see the response sent to me in my e-mail?
What I wish to know is:
If the saw is rated at 15 amps. Do I need to upgrade one of my circuits to 20 amps to run the saw?
If just cutting trim would using the saw run on a 15 amp circuit with a heavy extension cord be ok?
Or should I purchase a saw with a 13 amp rating?

You should probably post in the "electrical" section, but generally you should not exceed 80% of the rated circuit capacity, i.e. 12 amps on a 15a circuit. Either case, probably best to run a 20a circuit to the location. Extension cord probably not a good idea.
