Ty, I don't think you need more than 200 amps, unless you plan on welding aluminum with an old stool syncrowave.. my 210 only draws 35 amps or so at full draw. They'll give you 300 amp service, but they may charge you 10 grand or more to put it in.

I have no idea what welders draw, as my best version of welding is terrible, and I have not owned any electric welding equipment.

The new shop is a long time off. I have to see if there is even 220 volts available... I am trying to remember if I saw one, two or three wires on the pole which services my property in WV.

My dad and I put up a 25x25 "garage" in my back yard. It has it's own 200 amp service/panel. I have 2x 50 amp 240v outlets and several 120v outlets. Each wall has it's own breaker on the 120. He does woodworking and I have a 11x36 Rockwell lathe in there.

Unless you plan on buying an old skool syncrowave 250, which is a transformer based tig, and pulls just under a 100 amps at max load, you can reasonably figure that a single 50 or 60 amp circuit with multiple outlets will handle all your electric welding needs.

Sweet! Then a standard 220 volt 200 amp service will suffice!

Awesome!

I have my Lincoln 175 Squarewave TIG running on a 220v 60 amp circuit.

Looks like I will go with 50A on the 220 and then the three 110V -20A circuits should be enough then. Now I just need to see that they place a large enough service in the house. Seems like everyone wants to meet just the bare minimum in "code".

It most definitely costs extra to get a better breaker panel and more service to the house

It usually doesn't cost much extra to get more service put in. I paid about $1,000 to go from 200 to 300A service (although it was part of a much larger job so that may have influenced the price of that part) when I put in my shop.

The 200A was as-built.
