Re: Breaker size
You need to know what wire size is in the wall, if it is only a #14 then a 15 amp breaker is the max size you can have on that size, if it is a #12 you could put a 20 amp on it, but if there is any #14 any where on the circurt, then the 15 amp is max.
Ideally it would be nice if you could run new line to the shop and put in a sub panel and split up a few circuits, so you would have less voltage drop and be able to have a few more possibilities in the use of tools and when the need calls.
