I am in the process of running a sub panel for my shop. Nothing huge, just enough to feed my needs. Lighting staying on house circuit, 3 110 circuits, 3 220. The 220s won’t get used for quite some time. Most likely the first one will be my 1.5 HP motor for my wide drum sander build. Might as well start out with it that way. Next upgrade would likely be a new dust collector / cyclone. But my HF DC works well enough for now. The third really doesn’t need to be there. It runs HVAC which is 110V and no need to replace yet, or even close to yet. Would be good to have the power there if I need…

The main circuit, the one dedicated to power tools, will have 3 outlets. So I am going to be running a total of 5 220 outlets…
