Wiring garage for compressor, welder, and outlets


I'm running a sub panel to my garage 50 amp's. My compressor runs at 15 amps 220, welder around 30 amps 220 and probably around 6 110 outlets. The run from my houses panel to garage is around 70 feet do you think 6-3 wire is a heavy enough gauge to do the job. I won't be running the compressor and welder at the same time.

6/3 copper will be fine.
