I'm thinking of getting a new table saw that would require 220v. My shop is an out building of my own construction. For power, I ran #3 copper wire (black, red, white & ground) from my main panel in the garage (200 amp service) to the shop.There I have a main panel like the one in the garage, but have removed the bar making it sub panel (hope I'm saying that right). As for the wiring inside the shop, I ran 12/3 through out. The building is seperated into 5 circuits, 1 for each wall and 1 for the lights. All of the outlets on a given wall ARE linked together. So, my question is can I simply convert a wall by changing a single pole breaker to 2 pole and connect the red wire at both ends (the breaker & new 220v outlet)? Oh I should probably mention that none of the red leads in the 12/3 are NOT connected to anything at this time. And if so, does that mean I must or am, converting the whole wall? Thanks for any input you may offer!
