Adding a 20a, 240V outlet in my garage; conduit / code questions
I plan to add a 20A 2-pole breaker to my existing sub-panel in my garage and run via external conduit a line to feed an externally mounted L6-20 outlet for my new table saw. (when I say external I mean "not in the wall cavity", I am not talking about running this out side)
With this approach do I need steel conduit and a steel receptacle box or can I simply pick up what ever is cheapest / most user friendly at the hardware store (PVC, flexible, etc). I am planning on mounting the box "switch height" but is there a specific minimum height that should be maintained above the garage floor?
Thanks for the help.
gotta look but I think receps must be 3' from the floor, minimum, of a "garage" (not sure so nobody jump on me yet. this is just off the cuff).
