Default New wiring for my garage.

Hi, guys!!!

Recently I received some power tools that I bought in China but all of them use 220 volts si I also brought cables and electrical conections to make a new electrical installation for that purposes, including some home appliances that I also brought.

Keeping that in mind I hired a qualified electrical technician who took more than three days to do the job. All the existing wiring (in the garage and the house) was changed, a grounding bar was also placed since there wasn´t anyone, rated electrical boxes were installed and an isolated circuit was dedicated for my welding machine. Now I have electrical power to use all my tools. The outlets boxes for 220V are different as you can see in the attached pictures. Some painting work is needed to match all the walls.

It'll be real handy having all those outlets I bet. No unplugging one tool to plug in another. It's great to have a good working area.

I'm wiring my garage, as time permits. The insulation and rock isn't even in yet, but I have power to run my collectors, saws, lights and radio. Thought I was doing well, but someone pointed out the value of putting all my outlets such that any benches and things against the wall would not interfere with access. Guess I'll take "a few minutes out" and raise all of them..........

Best laid plans, as they say. That said, the net and the experience of others is nothing less than gold. Thanks world.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

[POWER]

Day before yesterday Easter, a friend came over and we put the circuits through their paces. At times, both the big and the little collectors had to run in conjunction with stationary and portable sanders, the band saw and the miter.

That's a lot of amps and reminded me I had to pick up a couple more 220 outlets and plugs so I could add a dedicated 220 outlet for the small collector.

I was glad I had four wall circuits and alternated between two circuits, as I worked down each wall, because the amp hungry miter and the small collector would have over-taxed a single 12 gauge circuit.

Currently, I have a temporary line running from the house. It only supplies sixty amps. So putting two guys in a shop making saw dust, using the things noted, pushes harder than I'd like.

A line from the street to supply 200 amp service is scheduled for summer. Then that'll get taxed more for a forced air heating and cooling system.

[INSULATION - HEATING, COOLING & SOUND PROOFING]

When wiring is complete, I'm thinking of going with mineral wool bats. They offer a bit more insulation value, and contribute to a quieter neighborhood.

I noticed I could see light at various spots at the bottom of the walls. From my experience, spending the fifteen bucks for a case of caulk and sealing every joint I could find produced impressive results in sound proofing. After all, sound is just air movement.

Then there's the house, which is my excuse for a new eighteen hundred square foot play area.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.
