Well I am getting ready to re-wire my shop. I do plan on a lathe going in there along with a mill. I already have my welders/air compressor. Wich runs off of 220. And from you guys and some research online if I would need a phase converter I will need 220 for that. Also idk if I can run multiple machines off of one converter. More research is needed on that. But I am thinking of running a 200 amp service just for the garage. That would be more then plenty correct?
The service for the shop is split at the meter. One line goin to the shop and the other to the house. And the only thing I can think of that would be running 220 at the same time would the compressor and maybe something else.
