Betcha you never would want to run `em both at the same time anyways, and something as simple as a $2.00 3-way switch makes them non-coincident loads.
That would work. Lol.

And you are still wrong. Again! It is NOT a listed motor-operated appliance. Did you even read my earlier post? Did you read the UL standard? Have you read 110.3(b)?

Read NEC 430.6 in totality. Especially the exceptions.
Yes you do. Try reading article 422 also. And re- reading 430.6 in it's totality again is never going to make right.

Don't have too. But if somebody did, it is compliant.

Thanks for everyone's input.
For the record, I decided to put both on a single 20- with 12 guage wire. It's a residential installation. I'll update you all it it fails inspection, burns down, etc.
Make sure the 3/4 hp motor has a 20amp plug and receptacle. The 1/2 hp can be a 15 amp plug and receptacle.
