All the aggravation up front. It is mind boggling how they did things way back, all done by some smart guy who just gets an idea

    forgot to add to my earlier post; if possible make as many home runs as possible! The least circuit sharing will make you very happy for years. Every machine on its own circuit. Bench outlets the same thing

    New shop-suggestions for wall material

    agree with Chris, walls open wire as you wood a house inside walls, then screw 1/2 ply or osb on. NOTE NOTHING less than 12 ga/20a circuits. Dont forget the mini split, :D :D :cool: :cool:
