I called an electrical company about running setting up a 220 outlet in my garage. He gave a high ballpark figure of between 185$ to 235$. He said on the high side because it was over the phone est.
I got some idea of what is involved in setting this up. Is this estimate a good deal? Could I do this myself without burning the house down? LOL I got a lesser qualified guy wanting to do it but I dont want him buring the house down either with a faulty wiring job. Can just about anybody do this safely?
Since my welding(235 ac Hobart stick welder--looking at buying) will be sporadic I dont want to pay the above price to run the 220 either.
I know it will be harder to weld with the stick but the price is right and its heavy duty
