I actually have 2 air compressors but nothing super fancy. Just a small 6 gallon pancake and my big craftsman pro 30 gallon. The craftsman says its a 15A load but i dont believe it. The power cord is as big as my thumb and its tripped a 20A if it kicked on when i was running a shop vac on the same outlet. I don’t do much in the way of auto work anymore. In fact my 1976 C10 SWB is supposed to be find a new home today.

I’m just now getting back into welding a bit. My boss gave me a full Purox oxy torch set including lines, gauges, and a bunch of brand new tips. My main purpose for those once I get a couple tanks is making my own mobile bases for big tools that dont have one.

I live in Kansas City so planning an exhaust fan as well as heating and cooling for the garage. The owner of my gym has a brand new “hotel” unit he never installed in his garage so I might be able to pick that up on the cheap.

Good idea installing a few outlets by the garage door that are normally free of regular use. On the topic of outlets is there any reason I can’t install the garage outlets like 4 ft off the ground? My brothers garage has them near normal house height and i find it highly annoying.
