I need another dedicated 220v 20 A circuit. My current main panel has a 220v 30 A and two 110v 20 A circuits that are for the shop alone. So.. I’m picking up a small 220v cyclone that would run in synchronization with a large machine on the existing, lone 220v. Therefore another separate 220v is needed.
Problem… the current main box is maxed out and has no more double spaces for the additional breaker and there is no space to double up with slim breakers to get the space I need.
Question… Could I use the space that the current 220V 30 A is now installed and replace that breaker with a 60 A? Then run a #6 gauge 3 wire 3 from it to a small sub-panel next to it? In that sub-panel I would install a 220 v 30 A and a 220v 20 A and run the appropriate #10 wire out-bound from it to the receptacles for each machine (and yes.. I will use #10 even on the 20 A)?
Thanks in advance for any assistance…
