I'd prefer to run a ground, I guess it just makes me more comfortable. I'm surprised #8 is all I need! I was expecting only a size or two smaller. #8 is much more wallet friendly! Thanks for the info!

That is a good idea too. If I upgrade that subpanel to 125 amps, would that be enough to service the finished basement circuits as well directly from that subpanel? That subpanel currently has 20...

I'm good with drywall, it's the look on my wife's face when I tell her I'm cutting a hole in the pantry in her new house that I'm not crazy about! Actually, putting in an access panel is a good idea...

I wasn't planning on any wire runs outside, it'll all be inside in conduit. I didn't realize the welder only had a three prong plug as I haven't picked it up yet. Just have it picked out. The camper...

This is an attached garage and the garage is drywalled already. The wall I'm running down is the exterior one, not shared with the house. I can't bury the wire either because the side of the garage...
