My wife and I are in the process of buying a new home and although I was told paint, carpeting, mowing the yard, and inspections are more important, I am most concerned with the building that will become my wood shop…28’ X 40’. (Whew!) As I slowly buy machinery, (bandsaw, jointer, planer, dust collection unit, lathe, and sanders), should I run a separate electrical service, or run a 220 from the house to this building? Should I assume that all of these machines will be 220? (With the exception of a smaller sander, I am not buying benchtop models.) Besides the electrical stuff, what are other considerations that I should ponder?
