Glad to see you have gfi receptacles in your shop. Yes, they DO fail. That is why the new ones have a lock molded into the face. The new ones self test and lock out if they are bad. Breakers also fail. Disconnect wire from breaker, and read hot and neutral to ground if you have a meter. Try breaker with no wire attached. Then reconnect wire and remove gfi and try breaker again. Remove gfi from circut and tie load and line wires together without gfi. See if it holds. If so, replace with new gfi. One step at a time.
