Cheers dude.

I was planning on having a circuit for the compressor and welder (and eventually lathe), a circuit for the lights and another for the general outlets to run the drill press/fridge/grinder/whatever.

What is your opinion of that. As stated earlier I am not the best with electrical stuff so I will be doing a lot of research and asking around before I do anything. After I summer it all up a sparky can come hook it together and make sure it is all up to spec.

Just really depends what sort of equipment you are running and how overboard you want to go really. If your welder is a 15amp welder you'd give it it's own circuit, possibly compressor with it depending on how big it is, or just have the compressor on the regular power circuit. Not sure what a lathe draws but you could just run a circuit for it later if you find you're overloading on the existing circuits. You could really go overboard or go tight arse, once the mains are in there it's not really an issue to add to it.

Thanks guys.

I have been having too much fun in the shed to update anything lately.

I went out and bought 30m of 6mm wire today, looks like I will be running some power tomorrow. Still need to buy conduit and finishing diggin that trench 600mm deep. But enough cable from the house to shed shed was expensive enough this week.

Anyway here is a photo of about 10mins ago. Finishing up for the night. On days off again now and it is no longer school holidays. Lets see what I can get done!

I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Alright. Got a bit done today most of it not visible.

Ran the wiring under the house and got a bit more of the trench dug. I also put a drop pin on the door to hold it open when need be.

Managed to get the boat loaded with all the crap I was storing at my old mans place and brought it over. Then I stuck my shelves up and that brings us to now.



Had a bit of help from my new workshop buddy. He likes to check over the bikes every time I open the workshop.

So with the trench dug I had planned to run the power on this lot of days off. But once more the weather had different plans. It has been raining all week and my trench has become a creek.

Well I got the power wire run under the house at least.

I also have gotten a fair bit of work done to a stuck engine I have on my workbench at the moment.
