[quote]This is the reason it’s against code to do what you are trying to[/quote] Understood, but I have many 110V outlets on the same 15A circuit that can add to significantly more that 15A if all used.

Main and sub panel are on the other side of the house. Would have about a 200'+ run fished through the attic. All garage lines are in EMT, so I can just temporarily do it, then pull down the branched outlet later. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Number of outlets on 220V 30A breaker. - Jon A thon on 6/15/21 at 9:23 am
Last summer I had a subpanel put in for my garage and included a 220V/30A circuit, but only put in one outlet for my table saw. Since then, I've gotten a jointer and bandsaw that also run on 220V. I currently have a small extension cord I use to run those machines, but I'm having to plug everythin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)

re: Garage Door Insulation - Jon A thon on 6/8/21 at 4:06 am

what to do while healing from bulging disc? - Jon A thon on 6/5/21 at 2:55 pm
I used to be very active in endurance running all the time and competing in triathlons. About 2.5 years ago I took a break from that due to little nagging injuries and then really got out of shape over 2020. I started up with crossfit in February and have really enjoyed it. I've had lower back pa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Depends on the school. My son took BJJ at a place that was awesome for kids. Wasn't too intense. Let them have fun while learning basics. We moved to the other side of town and it was just too far of a drive at the time they held the kids class. We went somewhere closer and they although they t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Water popping to knock down the fibers works, but if you do light sanding between coats anyway, there's no real reason to specifically address it.
