Hi everyLJs,

Yes, first thing to change: electricity!!!

Here you see the house unit. It's built like a commercial circuit panel( this is what the electrician told me).



This is the garage's panel:



As you can see, there wasn't enough breakers.

And here is the mew panel !!!



Bigger is better ! Yeah :)

In the case of electricity you are absolutely correct. Now you have plenty of power for your tools.

Thanks for sharing.

François;

Your electrician is right. It looks like many commercial projects I've worked on.

The new panel looks much better!

I remember the feeling of getting a panel installed in my shop. It opens a whole world of options.

Shouldn't be tripping any breakers for sure.

I hope that that both the FPE (Federal Pacific Electric) panels in the first two pictures were replaced, those breakers are bad news, guts made out of steel. They corrode and they DON'T trip when they are supposed to. they were cheap though! FPE went belly up a number of years ago. - - - I used to have a pair of linesman pliers with a large "stripping" notch. (and no, the breaker didn't trip) I was on a 10' stepladder in the middle of a store, just to make it interesting.

a heads up to any lumberjocks that still have them . . .
