I bought the house in Fed. and the garage only came with one 110v 15amp outlet in the 3 car garage. I’ve used this system the last 8 months, and it’s been a pain in my ass every time I want to use multiple tools on a project. Plugging and un-plugging cords, bending over thousands of times, you get my pain! lol
I finally have the plans to my shop and I know where I want all my tools to be permanently. I previously installed a 220v for my jointer I bought of CL in Dallas but a couple days later, I bought the same jointer for half the price and in better condition, but this one was wired for 110v. Within these couple days I had already wired the shop for 220v for the first jointer I bought on CLl. Instead of changing the jointer to 220v I decided to keep it 110v and convert the 220 wire where each plug has its own 20 amp breaker. I did this because I won’t be in this house but a couple more years and I don’t want to have wire my next house for 220.
So, after doing that with my 220v I also installed one 20 amp outlet for my HF dust collector and 3 quad outlets for all my other tools with two 15 amp breakers between the 3 outlets. Overall this was the best upgrade I’ve done to the shop yet!!!! I went from 2 plugs to 18!!!!!!
I can’t wait to start the next project!!
