    the powcon works great but i hate plasma cutters make the walls in the shop orange . i think i will only use it outdoors or get some kind of vent system for it . new torch made a big difference.

        More importantly, where's your shop, where do you hide the spare key, and is there an alarm?

          If you try to break into Dan's shop, let me know first. I want to get a camera so I can see what his "friendly puppies" will do to you.

            can you explain

I built most of it myself over this summer its dug 9ft into the ground at the back I live on a sloped view lot on an acre . all my neighbors thought it was to store the motorhome lol. I have a 200 amp 208 three phase service brought it from the hiway . right behind my shop is a major hiway so the noise wont be a concern plus both my neighbors have shops so im sure it will be cool . the whole thing had to be engineered as the walls act as retaining walls . there is close to 10,000 pounds of rebar and about 80 cu meters of concrete . its fully insulated with 2x6 walls and at least i would say an r 50 value in the ceiling . a little electric heater keeps the shop toasty even on the coldest days . cool thing about the power i paid upfront for it but after 5 years if i use that same amount in power i get the money back .
            Hi Can you explain how this works as far as the power and you geting your money back

Like i say dealing with the Bs of the city was the hardest part of doing this I would say .I had to pay for a new pole and the transformers originally they wanted 11 k to do it then they came down in price to 4 k basically you just have to deal with the right ppl and sometimes they can be hard to find . then to my suprise they said if you use 4 k worth of power in the next 5 years you will get your 4 k back . needless to say i leave the electric heat on 24/7 .
              Hi, We use about $2,000 worth of electric just in our home per year so using 4,000 would be easy for me ..we would use about $10,00 in 5 years..we are NOt all electric..gas water heater, gas cook stove..the only electric in lights and clothes dryer.

                basically i had to pay for the service and pole transformers etc.. as most times that is hydros responsibility . they basically said in last letter because i paid up front for this stuff if i use at least that amount of power in 5 years then im eligible to get the money refunded . the initial outlay of cash .

                  So, if they would make more on your power rather than the pole installation, they'll give you the pole?
