Thanks Johnny !! The house is presently equiped with a main 100 amp. You say for me to determine load value. Do you mean for me to count up all electrical devices, including lighting, as if all were in use at the same time, for a total sum of amps drawn on ?? This sum will allow a correct calculation of wire gauge to use and box to install ? Could I route the green grounding wire from the sub box directly to a ground rod driven into the earth outside instead of back to the original main box ?? I will gather up all the data on the equipment and lighting and email you direct. I sure appreciate your help.
I had the same setup in my old shop Krazy Loop. It worked well with only a couple of failures here and there when I was running to many machines at the same time and decided to do some heavy welding also. Once in a while the welder would trip the main breaker while all the other machines were running.
