I would need a 100' extension cord to go from my dryer outlet to the detached garage so I'm not going to go that direction. I got the 211 because it will run on either power source. My immediate needs do not require more power so I'll get to the 230 circut when time allows and do it right.

I need to build a work bench in the garage for a place to work. Mount my bench grinder and vise etc... Next week I'm off from work and look forward to the time to play with some steel.

Years ago I bought a very old Hobart TIG. It's from the late 50's - a little older than me but it still works like new (wish I could say as much) . 300 amps and water cooled it welds aluminum castings all day long. But it's as big as a fridge.

Very cool Corbet. I was just browsing the Miller website this week daydreaming about that set up.

I tied into the box, not a plug in. I checked the power and we have 40 amps for some reason. The way our house is wired is kind of strange anyway.

I may be able to help you with a work bench. What size are you looking for? They get rid of some nice benches and I have two myself. Some are wood tops others are wood covered with heavy laminate.

Bummer you have such a long distance from power but then again you can work at night without anybody complaining like my . Bedroom is above the garage.

I've got room for probably 20' worth of bench. I'm iterested in additional details. At our condo in Frisco I used some countertop material. It worked well and reasonalbly cheap.
