Second circuit to detached garage?
I have a detached garage (workshop) with 1 20amp circuit. I use a small compressor and when it starts my Fluor. lights dim and flicker( irritating). Building is 40 feet from house (maybe 100 feet from CB panel). I would like to add a second 20 amp circuit to run my compressor and table saw. I think this will stop my lights problem. Question is my plan code compliant? Can I have 2 seperate circuits in my detached building without adding a sub-panel?
