I am starting a business that involves the use of average woodshop equip (3 to 5 hp tablesaw,chop saw, band, etc.) I am negotiating a lease on a 5000 sf warehouse but I dont know anything about electrical.How do I know how much power should be coming into the box and how it should be distributed? Also, I am to lay out specs on the blueprint of where I want the conduit to run for outlets. Is there a strategic approach to this?

Good luck on your new venture.

Go to www.woodmagazine.com and check out their "Idea Shops" to get a start on planning your layout. If this is a business plan on a 220 saw. Design your layout so you know where you will need power for staionary tools.

Many woodworkers like the convenience of having outlets overhead. You will need additional outlets for corded drills, saber saws, circular saw, sanders, etc.

Plan now for additional (future) needs.
