Have heat in the new workshop, so now I’ve got to update the electrical. The shop is drywalled, so it’ll be surface run.
I’m going to have an electrician run a subpanel out to the garage, the I’ll probably finish off the rest myself. In the last shop I had an electrician do it all. He ran the armored BX(?) cable. Which for the most part was tidy as I had 3 circuits running down my shop wall. The cables were low enough that the did not interfere with anything on the wall. You can see it in the pictures of my bench. (If the pictures attach). Getting the electrician to run conduit was very expensive.
Since I’m going to finish it off myself I was considering using conduit for a cleaner look. I’ll be running multiple circuits down the wall, I assume that it’s one circuit per conduit. So I’ll need three conduit runs running down the wall… Will this look as clean?
Is there any real advantage to running conduit over the armored cable? Is the conduit as easy to run as I imagine it to be (I wont need to make an of my own bends…).
