220V up and running

>Thanks to all of you who guided me to wiring the 220V line in my shop. Yesterday, I wired a 30A 220V circuit in about 30 minutes. I had my neighbor check my work before we sealed everything up, and it tested perfect on the first time.

A funny aside- Apparently, the Rikon bandsaw has a soft start. Lots of buildup, push the switch and nothing... momentarily sucked the wind out of me. Then the saw got rolling, and life was good. Comes with a crappy 3/4" blade that I'll be replacing the next time I go out to the garage, but it did cut it's first turning blank yesterday.

Like butta...
