I have three wall-outlet circuits in my shop. One on each wall (4th wall is the rollup doors). They are each 120v, 20amp.

While plugging in to one of these wouldn’t be “dedicated”, I’m the only one in the shop and can only use one tool at a time. At most I’d have the tablesaw and a dust collector running, so plug one in on one wall and another in on the other wall.

the panel actually has to 240v breakers in it now, one of which is a 60 amp and one is a 30 amp, but there isn’t much in the way of viable 240v tablesaws in my budget (would much rather be closer to the $1k than the $1.5k) and adding the outlet just adds to the cost.

At the end of the day I’m not in the shop enough to justify dropping $2k on one tool.
