I have two 20 amp circuits run to my workshop in the basement. Both are protected by 20 amp breakers in the main breaker box. Occasionally I would like to be able to shut off one or both circuits and would like the convenience of doing this in the workshop. I have a Square D load box that will accept 2 breakers. I would like to use this as my disconnect box in the work shop. It is acceptable to feed a breaker from another breaker?
If this is not an acceptable practice I could purchase a disconnect box but have not run across one that will handle 2 seperate circuits. Are they available ?

Thanks

Install 2 20 amp switches in a 2 gang box. By far the cheapest and code compliant way to go.
