Well I got to stressed trying to look up and read all this code junk so I am getting an electrician to finish the rest but its #2 alum. Because well basically it was cheaper than copper and all they had in alum. I am only using a 60 amp breaker to feed the shops 100amp panel. I'm sure ill be back for more help on wiring the outlets and what not. He is going to dig the ditch and finish running the conduit for me and hook it all up for $100, so going to just go that route. Thanks for all the help guys!
WOW that's a deal. If I could find a bunch of guys like that I would subcontract jobs to them and stay home.
With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.
