« Part 3: delayed start but happy to wait Part 4 of REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP series no next part

Quick update spent the day you vwrjng the shop with my huddg and it’s all done now. Installed 4 new lines (three 110v and one 240) so that the table saw, lathe, band saw and drill press each have their own dedicated circuit. Have to organize everything again but totally worth it very excited to get it up and running.

-- it never ends well if you start by unscrewing the split nuts

It’s a good feeling to have power where you want it.

Next, setting up and organizing. I find that finding a place for everything when is so challenging when I have such a clean slate to work with. Once I get my stuff in my shop I’ll be about where you are are now, albeit with a bit more space. It’s going to drive me crazy trying to not move anything twice but needing to move everything to make or install whatever shelf, bracket or rack that I need so that everything doesn’t have to be moved so much.

On the plus side, every step is a step towards better, and we’ve got the pictures to show how far we’ve come.

-- If I knew then what I know now, I'd have made a completely different set of mistakes.

Good that you have the space in the breaker/breakout box. I ran only two dedicated 240v runs, one for the tools and one for the vacuum. They are 20amp runs so I can easily have two tools on at a time without issue and have the vacuum going.

Have your say...
