Default Power for the shop

"krw" wrote in message
Stom imagining a perfect world. It doesn't exist. If you want
something done right you're better of doing it yourself, if at all
possible. Electrical work is simple (work, but simple). Wiring a
200V circuit for a saw is usually simple. A sub-panel is simple.
Sure, it takes time and some amount of work.

The context, if you'll recall, is the OP asking advice on wiring the shop
from an existing dryer breaker. I'll grant you that it's all simple, and
thus hardly worth your chest thumping. At the same time, you have to
recognize that there's quite a bit of knowledge missing between the advice
he'll find here in a woodworking newsgroup, and what he needs to know to
finish the job safely. Doesn't it frighten you just the slightest to see the
studious looks on the homeowners' faces as they pick through the electrical
parts bins in the big box store, puzzling through how the things work and
how to put it together? It's like watching a drunk leave the bar and get in
his car to drive home. You just know it's an accident waiting to happen.
