I use 80% hand tools, however we just upgraded our entire electrical panel because it was outdated, no breaker space, unsafe. Had the electrician install 1 220 outlet for my bandsaw (I was using the dryer outlet, which was kind of a PITA), which is the only machine that needs that large of a plug. Also had him install two 120 outlets for other stuff.

So if I’m not a electricity hog in my garage and needed three more outlets, I’d say you need to add some plugs.

I defer to electrical experts about how best to do that. I can add an outlet to an additional circuit, but when it comes to adding a new circuit to the panel, I’m gonna pay a pro.
