Sort of off topic.
I replaced my tilt-head Kitchenaid mixer last year with the bigger lift-stand model. Too much bread dough wore the tilt-head out.
I was adding a couple of outlets to the basement shop earlier, using an existing 20 amp line to the kitchen. I turned the mixer on upstairs, to make sure I turned off the right breaker.
When I was done, I turned the breaker back on, but the mixer stayed off. I turned the mixer switch off, then back on, and the mixer started up normally.
I’ve seen magnetic switches on some stationary woodworking tools, but never on a kitchen appliance. That’s a quality machine.
Agree, that is a quality mixer. The bread my wife makes doesn't require a mixer and it tastes good. She adds sunflower seeds and other seeds. Just don't use any joinery or wood glue. A butter glaze is the best finish.
John if you are in the US you just violated the NEC. Kitchens are required to have a minimum of 2 20A Circuits dedicated to small kitchen appliances (no large or built-in appliances) these Circuits can't be shared with any other rooms. Even potentially worse you may also have to face the wrath of your wife when her mixer shuts down because you're working in the shop while she's making bread.
PS. I won't tell anyone but you have to deal with your wife on your own. ;-)
I've got 4 other dedicated 20 amp circuits in the kitchen, and the fridge, microwave and dishwasher are all on other dedicated 15 amp circuits too. I always run extra. And the kitchen appliances are never going when I'm in the shop.
If you run into my (ex) wife, it's best if you don't mention you know me. Actually, it's best if you just head in the opposite direction.
Likewise, but now I never have to explain why I need a new tool.
I could never do green woodworking before. There's no way I was going to keep sharp axes around.
