Last time we left off I had just finished up painting the walls, installing new lights and preparing for the electrical installation. Over the last two months, utilizing Grizzly’s shop lay out tool, ive done my best at placing all the equipment with ample room for infeed and outfeed. I ran all new 3/4” PVC conduit and hung a new 100 amp, 20 slot, subpanel.
There will be a total of 24 new receptacles on 8 circuits. 21 receptacles will be 110v, one will be dedicated circuit for the dust collector, and the balance will be 3, 220v outlets to serve the larger machines. Ive got sparky coming over this coming Saturday morning to hook the sub panel to the main, install all the breakers, and help me along with the wiring until I feel comfortable finishing on my own. Ill have him back for a final inspection and then we’ll throw the switch!
With any luck the next episode in the saga of slow and steady we will have live power and I can begin on setting up outfeed tables, work surfaces, tool storage, and the much anticipated bench build.
