need help with woodshop subpanel


Only if the entire run is sized with #10 could you upgrade to a 30 amp breaker to feed the subpanel.

need help with woodshop subpanel


Ok. So ill replace the small length of 12/3 with 10/3. That will make the entire run 10/3 to the box in the shop. Then change the 20 amp double pole in main panel,with 30 amp double pole correct?
