I wired my shop with a 50 amp load – for two reasons….I had a spare 50 amp breaker and the largest amperage I could carry on the 10 guage wire I had was 50…. To date I haven’t had any issues with popping breakers….or with any wires getting hot….I have run 2 – 220 tools (TS and Planer), the dust collector @110 and the shop lights all at the same time without any noticeable effect…not even a noticeable dimming when the TS kicks on.
