I have a dust collector, table saw and (future) jointer that run at 220v and all have protection on the motors and the manufacturers have stated that I can run them off of my existing 50amp 240v circuit.
Since the total of any two machines plugged into this circuit (dust collector running + one 220v machine) that would run simultaneous on this 50 amp circuit would be 25-30 amps, am I ok with running 4 240v outlets on this circuit without using a sub panel? The single outlet which is currently on this circuit is wired with 8 gauge wire 3 feet from the breaker in the main panel.
Can I run 4 240v outlets using 8 gauge with my furthest outlet running 20 feet away?
I don’t believe the requirements I have stated here necessitate the installation of a sub-panel, but I would like everyone’s input here on the subject.
Thanks in advance.
