  • Nice! It's a cool and functional spot to have in your man cave!

  • Nice!  I've done something similiar in that, I've moved some computers out into my garage, and now, it's like I'm building another world.  Seriously, I want to redo the whole thing, and incorporate the computers into the space, and currently, heat is a pretty big issue, so I'm thinking of cutting an AC unit into the wall.  Power then is my next concern as I already trip breakers when running tablesaw and shop I have a long way to go it seems.  Did you have heat issues in your space?  How did you deal with them?  Power?

    • about the heat issues I got a blower fan, I have it in front of the computer on a timer that comes on for about a half hour at night that blows cool air into the intake fan, with the power 
      last year i had to replace drywall by my door so i also hid the panel in the wall cause it was attached to the drywall when we bought the house and i replaced the breakers to push 40 amps for my main cause thats all i had and two 30 amps and one 15 but i leave that one off cause its for a flood lamp i don't use, I only have 120 going thru my garage and one 30 amp outlet to power my mig hope that helps, I hear the best way not to blow the breaker is run 60 amp for main and at least 30 for others or put in a couple surge protectors

    • Yeah, that does help seeing it explained that way.  When you refer to 60 amp main, is that saying you set up another sub-box entirely where the 40 amp is the main and the 30's are all fed by it?   But would be better with 60 amp for main.  How did you feed the 60 if that is the set up.  From house panel main?
