That looks like a decent price; have you enquired whether the pic that claims up to 6 units daisy-chained is true, or 4 (like the text shows) ? All the ones I've used say 4 (which is fine, as long as you know BEFORE you hook 6 up for each feed... Steve

I got the Ceiling pressure washed and the electrical for the lights up
Also got to use the new drill bit a old coworker designed and built
http://www.snakebitdrill.com/ It also doubled as a drill guide for my hole saw.

I got some electrical outlets wired. The door guys came and put up my new doors. Ran the wiring for lights and mounted the panel.

I think you'll be pleased with those lights. I swapped all my antique 8' floro fixtures out to the single 8' bars like these and added a second set of the 4' ones for spot lighting over the tools I use most. I've meant to do a thread on them for the better part of this year but haven't taken the time to do it.

With them being mounted so high, I am curious about how well they'll light up the actual work surface when you need it. I only have them on an 8' ceiling and they do a great job. For the money invested in the project, under $230 total, I couldn't ask for a better solution.

I cant remember I was going to measure it with my meter when i was home last, but the meter Died. I have 30 lights on each circuit and when I was calculating I think I am allowed 45 lights per circuit. I think?

I bought a Light meter and started measuring good bit of shops in my area. You would be amazed at how dark most shops are and they think they are bright till you pull out the meter. Auto Repair shops are supposed to be 80-100 Foot candles of light machine shops are 100-150 FC and High quality machine shops are 150-200FC
Foot candles are them amount of light that actually reach the floor or machinery. I based mine off 100FC
1 circuit is 35FC
2 circuits is 65FC
3 circuits are 90FC
majority of the time we operate on 1 circuit my Dad and I , but when you want more turn more on as needed.
I ordered 140 of them they cost me about $14 a piece
Now my Dad want me to do his shop
