Thanks for the additional comments.

@iblewjon Not sure, where your info comes from, but “2 HP, 120V/240V (prewired for 120V), single-phase, 15A/7.5A ” is strait off of the grizzly website, for the Shop Fox W1837. I can’t argue based on personal experience, I’m just going off of the specs that have been made available.

@HokieKen If by “cap” you mean maximum capacity, your first understanding is correct and the cap is 30A not 20A. I was however responding to CaptainKlutz’s who linked a 20A receptacle as a possible solution to put on my 30A circuit.

@WhyMe I agree that the best scenario might be to create a 240v/30A sub panel in the garage. That does sound a bit more costly though, so I will need to price it out to see.
