Yea, if I have the oppurtunity to build my own garage, the wiring would be the #1 thing I cared about. Re-wiring sucks and future proofing it would be my goal.

I shouldn't say it "sucks" but yea..just did a 30A 240v wiring for my small garage heater. If I ever get a bigger compressor I'll probably just re-wire the whole garage. Hate findind out the wiring isn't rated for what I need lol.

Rule of thumb:
14 <= 15 amp
12 <= 20 amp
10 <= 30 amp

If you do, thats a HUGE appliance. Reminder, you get 30A for each leg with 240V, so you can get up to 60A @ 120V.

yeah um. I have just a mixture of stuff. Home depot is down the street from me, so for quick trips, they suck for finding nit-picky one off items though. I'll 50% of the time hit up lowes or 50% hit up sears, just depends which one is closer to another destination I could go by on the same trip.

This is how much I care about tools, all 3 major store brands all offer the same lifetime warranty.

For power stuff I tend to be a bit pickier, but still not buying industrial rated stuff.

this does depend on length or wiring though, but that's pretty conservative gauges so should be fine.

Very true. I assumed he's just going from a subpanel in the garage to an outlet somewhere in the garage. If so, like you said, those gauges are sufficient.

Yea I just went with about 6 feet away from the panel. Didn't want to tear walls down, half of the garage is finished and the other half isnt lol.

What do you guys use to store tools? Can't afford to buy big tool cabinets. Any recommendations for smaller boxes?

I know, I was just being anal. I deal with cable pulls of several thousand feet constantly. But anywhere in/near a garage you'll be fine. Even if you exceed the ratings a bit (don't tell anyone i said this) you'll be fine.

I bought a shitty cabinet, which I regret. Seriously, don't bother buying the bottom of the barrel ones. I think this summer I may go look at spending a bit more on a Kobalt one, like the one Infantry has.
