Re: The Christmas Tool Thread - what did you get this year?

A festool sys 1 cart, makes moving the ever growing stack of sustainers easier to move around. A Route 66 sign and an inverter for the car. The rest is not garage related.

Re: 240 volt hookup question

That is not good enough, you will need a disconnect as previously indicated. I am not sure if a lockable breaker might meet that requirement, that you can lock out tag out.

Re: Increasing Ceiling Height

Re: Preferred Fluorescent color?

5k is my preference as well. Since I also worked as a photographer, I became very used to the 5k color temp, anything else just seems off, either too yellow or too blue. But really, it is a personal...

Re: Kitchen island and avoiding a column

Re: What did you do "IN" your garage today?

Sprayed a total of 16 gal primer and paint in the 3 car garage. Glad to be done and breathing again. Even with masks on, I felt like I was going to pass out at time.

Re: Changing 240v 20amp to 50amp for Welder

Use a volt meter, at the very minimum you should have one of these before doing any electrical work.
