Wranglerstar please make a video in the future on your thoughts on pole barn shop vs steel vs stick build including estimates on prices if you can. I can find many local builders in the Willamete valley that will put up a pole building for me. I don’t know where to start on metal buildings such as your current shop. I am looking at something between 30 x 60 and 36 x 72. Would have a 12 foot tall door for a camp trailer. I like the Idea of metal or stick best, but cost is an unknown.

Like everyone else, I would run a 1/2" conduit and 2 #10 AWG wires (THHN) plus a bare copper ground. A 240 volt, (2-pole) 30 amp breaker will protect it, compressors have a relatively light startup load. You can go up to the girt and use pvc conduit. Fasten it to the girt within 3 feet of the boxes and every 3 feet along the way. You could (I would) make it a 3/4" (or even 1") conduit so you could run wires later for other uses. Just use a bigger junction box at the end of your run and you will be able to branch off later. Hope that helps!

I would put in a 50 amp disconnect and drop a 50 amp plug right below it also. Makes for a great generator connection. You need 8 gauge copper. 8-3 w/ground if you are buying Romex that’s what I did in my shop

I can tell you in the UK with our wonderful metric system (although we do use 240v as standard) ;-) that you would need a 32mA breaker and 4 mm2 wire. Your 10 gauge comes to 5.2 mm2 so, here in the UK if you used 10 gauge on a 32mA breaker you would be well within the limits. I believe the maximum length of cable we can use at 4mm2 is 350+ metres I know that is of no real use to you, but hello from the UK anyway

Can I recommend a Three-Phase Transformer and a Junction Box? A TON easier dropping in an old CNC, Lathe or Vertical Mill *IF* you have Three-Phase installed.
utiplayer Måned siden
Yup, three conductor 10 gauge stranded, of course. Breakers are made to support constant current of about 70% of rating, so a little rough math would put your breaker at 30 amps, to handle a bit of surge yet not enough to overheat the supply cable. Also, why doesn't the modern homesteader have a framing nail gun! Would be easier and faster, not to mention easier on the back without having to pre-drill and screw all your framing members.
BIGCHEW Måned siden
a double 30a breaker & 10/3 Copper wire is what minimum code is but you could use a # 8/3 wire with the same 30a breaker & if at some point ya needed to run a even bigger compressor you could with out halfing to worry about it burning down ure shop & just swap to a 40a breaker with the 8/3 copper but double 30 amp breaker with 10/3 Copper Wire is what it should be ! ! That is minimum code where i am at ! But you can run say a 8/3 with the same 30 amp breaker but not the other way round & That Is What I Would Do Any Thing Worth Doing Is Worth Over Doing/Doing Right aIl Always say!

You would need 2#10+G in a 3/4"C with a 60A, 2P breaker. Assuming your motor FLA is 23-25A, you will have to upsize the breaker for motor in rush per code. if the distance is greater than 100 feet, use #8 wiring.

Hey Cody, what kind of framing hammer do you use ?
Cotronixco Måned siden
Electrical engineer here. It's 22 amps at 240 VAC single phase running current. But it's not just about the running current. Inductive loads require greater ampacity for reliable starting. Some motors start harder, and some are under a greater load at start. So for 50' on this one, I'd run #8-4 (two hots, a neutral, and a ground). If your load doesn't require a neutral (you didn't specify), you can get by with #8-3 (two hots and a ground). Then install a 2-pole 40a breaker. You won't go wrong. #10 is a tad too light IMO.

like said before 10awg 30 amp two pole, 10-3 armored really might save you some time. The horizontals work as a nice raceway for the cable.

Hey Cody, I notice that your framing doesn't have any cross bracing in between the studs. I'm asking because I don't know and want to learn. I'm not even sure I'm using the right terminology.

I'm not quite sure why I see so many people using screws for basic wall framing. Seems like a waste of money to me.
Max Cranley
Max Cranley Måned siden
If you're interested about how the gauge of cable is calculated for single phase power, this is the function: What size wire should I use? - (Amps x distance in feet x 21.6)/voltage drop desired = cmils of cable to achieve that voltage drop. How far can I run this X gauge cable? - (voltage drop desired x cmils of cable) / (Amps x 21.6) = distance in feet There will always be some voltage drop, as all cables are adding resistance, it's just a matter of how much voltage drop is allowable for your use.

Hi from Australia. I'd recommend installing a changeover switch and generator inlet plug for your power supply so that you can easily swap from grid to generator without having to try to physically wire the gennie in each time.

10-3 wire with a 30 amp breaker. If possible, I would get your amp meter out and see if the motor is actually running that amperage. Older motors that have been worn down draw more amps.

make sure the wire is approved for your area installing, NO ROMEX, I advise running the wire in conduit, EMT would look best 3/4 pipe size, put a strap every 10ft at least 1 strap within 3ft of connectors/cupplings, no more than 360 degree bends in total from jbox to jbox. THHN wire Or if you wish for easier install but maybe more costly material Metal Clad will work Make sure it runs to the disconnect then use MC, Greenfield, carflex, or liquid tight to whip from disconnect to machine. Not sure if you need a neutral or not
HERPDEDERP49 Måned siden
not an electrician but an EE 10 Gauge would be fine for the wiring. NECC says 80% of max rating is ideal for both conductor and breaker so if you put 25 amps it goes a bit over 80% but not gonna kill anyone, i'd say 10 Gauge would be fine. 8 gauge if you want it to be a monster.

G K Måned siden
Soundproofing. Hi, since you haven't gotten too far into building the walls.... I think you should soundproof those walls around your air compressor. You could get 2x6 or 2x8 base and top plates and stagger the studs side to side so that the drywall on the inside doesn't connect directly to the drywall on the outside through a 2x4 (if that makes sense). You then weave rock wool between the studs for sound dampening. So the wall looks kind of like this looking down from the top (= is stud, | is drywall): |= | | =| |= | | =|

Not an electrician here, but I do have a tip for framing walls like that. Lay the wall out on the floor, snap chalk lines (blue) and spray them with hairspray. The spray will keep the lines from wiping off but won't be permanent. You can then move the bottom plates to the line as you work your way across and tapcon them down. I'd also suggest you crown the studs so the direction of the crown is consistent (up when you assemble the wall) and be sure to use dead straight studs on the corners.

The run gets to the other end of the workshop, so maybe an option would be to use a heavier cable and fit another distribution board by the compressor. I am sure you will have other things on that side you would eventually want to connect up. Saves running many long runs out to a similar area in the future.

My son works for Baldor and they design those motors. He is an engineer over ac and dc motors. I guess I could ask him to help you on the sizes but there’s probably a good electrician that could help you quicker. Baldor was bought by a Swedish company call ABB. They still make compressor motors along with large mining equipment, oil rig equipment and much more. The plant my son works at is in North Carolina.

I'm not an electrical guy but I do know something about building with wood. Why didn't you use proper corners on the walls? It give the corner more stability. I'm not going to mention the screws instead of nails because that's your choice. If you have the time and money screws hold better.

30 AMP breaker for sure. Distance will set the requirement for the size of the wire. #10 would work but #8 would reduce the wear and tear over time. Assuming it is a 220 connection, I would remove the current connection and wire the compressor end directly into the control interface box.

Next time your at a big box store pick up one of their how to books on wiring. The 123 book from Home Depot makes it simple to understand
ReefMimic Måned siden
Remember only to go only %80 of the load. For example if you use a 20 amp beaker , you don’t want to use more than 18 amps on that 20 amp breaker. That goes true for sub panels etc. If you use %100 of the 20 amp breaker it will trip... If you plan on passing inspection this is something to consider. You should be able to have everything turned on (every circuit) without tripping the panel. But if your desperate to run large motors you’ll want everything else on that circuit or panel to be off or at a minimum.

John Sokol
John Sokol Måned siden
Electrical Engineer here, you need a breaker sized to 125% of the rated full load amps per article 430. If you have split phase power coming in that means you will have 230-240V and will need a (23*1.25=28.75A) 30A breaker. If you have 3 phase power, you will only get 208V and need (25*1.25=31.25) a 35A or 40A breaker. 40’ will cause minimal voltage drop (on a #10 you wouldn’t be worried until about 140’) so your main concern would be ampacity. Using the amperages before you would need #10 per 310.16 for either case assuming it’s not getting above 113F in your shop. Careful if you put it in conduit. If you have a second set of conductors in the same conduit you will need to derate the wire and your #10 will no longer work.

The compressor needs a 30 amp 220 breaker means it is wide to go across both buss bars in the box 110v + 110v= 220v. Dual pole. As for the wire: 8 gauge on both hots and you can get away using 10 gauge on the ground. I just went 8 gauge for all three in mine. Hope this helps God bless you.

Lots of good answers from electricians and journeymen. The 30 amp double pole is minimum code. While more expensive, 50 amp breaker is better. I've had both on 240 circuits, and the 50 amp setups gave fewer issues (zero). Match your wire to the breaker - 10 guage minimum.
