I wondered about the best approach and where GFCI should be used in the shop.
- One or more GFCI breakers in your single phase panel
- A GFCI outlet in each 120V circuit.
So basically, the 240 3phase to power the lathe motor, but we're just going to do a separate circuit altogether for controls/accessories. That actually makes good sense. Does this mean I'll need like a "master power on/off" for the 120v control circuits?
Speaking of wall receptacles for 120V, buy the good ones, 20 Amp, industrial or heavy duty. They are about $5 each vs. the $0.95 ones, well worth the price difference in the long run.
