A few days ago I asked a few questions about installing a subpanel in
my garage. I am done with this job. I used 8 gauge THHN wires, 3/4"
conduit, little corner thingys, and ready made bent elbows.
The subpanel is HomeLine. I used a HomeLine 60A breaker on the main
panel (which has all other breakers by Gould), and have the following
breakers on the subpanel:
50A 220V (this is 30A now because I bought 30A by mistake, but I will
replace it with a 50A asap).
I have not yet installed the outlets.
I had a father of my friend visit today, he is a professional
electrician. He okayed my work.
I am going to return my kerosene heater to HD and install a 220V 4.5
kW heater in my garage.
Also, one of the reasons why I did all this is that I have a 2.2HP
compressor (harbr freight), which tripped the breaker when it ran with
other tools. Now it will have its own circuit.
I might install an air line from the garage toi the basement, to have
air in my basement workshop. It should not be difficult.
