Dustin if you upgrade to a 3 hp table saw it will be 220v. My dust collector is 9 amp 220v. A lunchbox type planer will run on 110v but if you go to floor standing models they will require 220v. My 8" jointer is also 220v. Keeping your options open now will make life easier in the future.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Toms suggestion is a good one, I ran a 220 outlet every 8" @4' hi on the surface down both sides of my shop, now I switched the TS,BS,and RAS all to 220v. and it is so much better.
You will surely need 220 v. if you are going to do any welding, as you mentioned before.

Now I see why the trusses were not welded together.

Man I would love a big cabinet table saw. I currently have an old craftsman that I inherited from my wife's grandfather when he passed.


I plan on OSB sheathing, painted white and there will be no ceiling in the shop.

With a removable panel above the breaker box, it will be really easy to run cable along the top plate into the appropriate stud space.

I feel like I should wait until I have the 240 equipment to size the wire appropriately for the amp requirements.

My welder is a Hobart handler 140 that runs on 120v. Not a bad little machine. I want to pick up a Lincoln stick welder for heavier gauge stuff.

I appreciate everyone's suggestions and kind words. Please keep it coming!

PS, here's a pic of the model number of my saw. Not much info on the net about it and I need to find a blade guard for it.

May I suggest that you paint the OSB while it is on the sawhorse ,easier and faster than after it is on the studs, at least the first coat, it soaks up paint like a sponge.

That TS would probably run on 220v. Mine did,and what a difference, never blew a breaker during ripping after that.

My current Craftsman 12" direct drive table saw runs on 220v. too and never has blown the breaker ripping.

Forgot ,like Chuck mentioned you will want a dust collection system too that will require 220 v.

Without a ceiling too you can always run overhead with the 220 v. an drop where the machines are located.

Good info on the painting.

That would be outstanding if the saw could be converted to 240. I'll have to research that.

Dust collection is high on the list of needs. The ole shop vac just isn't cutting it. I'll look into that once I start moving in and figure out my layout. I have some ideas laid out in sketchup but we'll see how it goes once I start putting things in their place.

What are you going to do for insulation?

Just a few updated pictures of the progress. He doors are built. They still need trim and some latches built. Also did some more wiring. Need to wire one more wall of plugs and figure out where my 240 outlet(s) will go and what amp outlets to install.

Wow, that is turning into a great shop. Lots of good advice on the electrical. I don't know if it's too late, but I would put the outlets at 52 inches so you can fit a sheet of ply against the wall. I set mine too low and wish I hadn't. I also have to admit to a little shop envy.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I'll admit to a lot of shop envy. But if I had a shop like that for awhile I would do is sit in it in awe. Looks great.
