Thanks JJ. It's a pretty good article and the chart might be handy for someone wanting to wire in a machine. I would disagree with one section though. I can't speak for US code but I think in Canada all the stationary tools must be on their own circuits. The possibility exists that more than one machine could be used at one time which would overload the circuit and wiring. A rough estimate for cost of doing a circuit yourself is only around about maybe $30 per machine which would be about $15 for a breaker, maybe $10 for wire, and $5 for an outlet and that's being generous for wire and box. 220 Volt would be maybe an extra $10-15. The real cost these days is if you have to get a licensed electrician out to do it for you.
