I'm with Charlie on this one. I get glue-ready surfaces with my 24T Lietz TK Rip on my 22124 which is a close cousin of your SCTW. I used to run on a shared (with a couple overhead lights) 20a 110v circuit. I was going to switch the saw to 220v but after installing a sub-panel and a dedicated 20a circuit, it cuts like a much more powerful saw.

If you let your lumber set stickered for 3 or 4 weeks and still have excessive problems when you cut, you may want to consider a different source for your material to see if the yard isn't handling it correctly. Some wood just "relaxes" when cut but this shouldn't be the norm.
