DC Ross Posted January 30, 2008 Report Share Posted January 30, 2008 So I finally bit the bullet and got a brand-spankin' new Grizzly G0457 bandsaw. The only problem is that I'm an idiot. It comes prewired for 220V operation and can be rewired for 110V, so I figured "Great, I'll just rewire it, plug it in and go", not realizing that it'll be pulling 20A @ 110V. The instructions specify that it requires a 25A circuit and a 5-30 or an L5-30 outlet. Even if I could find either of these outlets, they wouldn't do me much good, since I only have (over-loaded) 15-20A circuits. So... I'm thinking about installing a subpanel in the garage / shop, which is about 20 feet from the main panel. I have 2 open breaker recepticles in my main panel, so that shouldn't be an issue. Has anyone done this themselves? Any words of advice? Anything else I should be planning for? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
