220v in the workshop [Apr. 21st, 2010|01:06 pm]
Doug Ayen
So, yesterday, the electrician I hired showed up and ran 100 amps of 220v to the workshop. This is something I've wanted for some time. Tomorrow he'll be installing plugs and sockets, so this weekend I'll be moving a lot of the big, dangerous equipment out of the garage (finally). This includes the tig and mig welders, the plasma cutter, and the 2 BHGs (Big Honking Grinders), as well as some other stuff currently cluttering up the place. This will also give me a real outlet to plug the power hammer into, instead of having to fire up the generator as I do currently.

If anyone wants to play around on the equipment in the new location, come on by Saturday/Sunday. I should be around.

In other news, my contractor managed to break the refrigerator while moving it around the kitchen. He's volunteered to pay Sears to repair it, at least. The painter should be coming by next week, so I also need to finish cleaning out my office so the walls can be seen :)

Progress. It's a good thing.

I should be up and about fairly early, as I've shifted my work schedule to deal with contractors showing up at 7am for the last month. Anytime after 9am should work fine.

Cool job. What did it cost to put it out there, and did the electrician do the line trenching?

I need to get 220 out to the shed along with a 110 sub-distribution panel to the two other ones.

The electrician did the line trenching, still waiting on the itemized bill since I had him do additional work as well.
