I was called a "Code Nazi" hence no direct numbers, height, amperage ratings per NEC. Maybe I should just post a picture of my Third Reich 1937 Nazi Bier Stein resting on top of a NEC Code Book instead? LOL, one must be "PC" these days ya know. Below a double post delete. I had many NASTY PM's by the "POL" in the past, this cured me of electrical replies sorry boss. Maybe "CodeRage" will chime in?
Thanks to all, I will probably put the top at eye level so it's easy to wire in. My old man will gripe if he has to stoop over to far.
Nothing like a good electrical question to get everyone going. I swear an electrical debate forum would wipe the old forum out.
I would actually like to see that picture. My buddy (old electrician boss) would love to have that picture....
I looked into it more with our code guys. They say as long as the height of the ceiling in the room from floor to ceiling is 6'5" or higher and unobstructed.Then you should be fine. Taking into consideration that you need 36" minimum of clear space in front of the panel.
So anywhere around chest height for the main disconnect should keep you safe.

Another question perhaps? I have a square D 100amp 6 space 12 circuit panel. I plan 2 30 amp 240 lines. 1 circuit for air conditioner, 1 for just pumps and whatnot. 1 for the rest of the outlets, and 1 for freezers until the cold room is done. The lights will all be run off my garage circuit. What else do I need to plan for? Do I really need 2 240v lines?
I would gladly send it forward if I can get it out of the old Gateway that had a total HD failure, lost 8 years of photos amd information. The $300 plus price to pull the HD is too steep for me at this time, your on my "must send it to me list".
Brewmoor, send me a PM with your email address I took a couple photos that i'll sent to ya. Carl.
