When I remodeled my 2 car garage into a dedicated shop, I went from a single 15amp GFCI outlet and a single bulb to a 10×110v and 3×220v, 2 zone lighting, and a single 20amp circuit dead center in my ceiling for my most used electrical outlet in the shop with the use of my 25’ 12amp electrical reel.
When I began my journey into wood working, all I had were 110v machines for my bosch 4100 saw, 13” Rigid lunchbox planer, Rockwell 6” jointer, and Rigid shop vac. 3 years later, I am very happy I ran some 220v circuits as I know have a 220v Unisaw, 220v Powermatic 66, 220v 15” Jet planer, 220v 8” GeeTec jointer, and 220v 3HP Grizzly DC.
This should give folks an idea of how time changes your needs from 110v to 220v.
