    well, many home lab-ers probably end up spending that much eventually, so might as well get it over with in one shot, right? :p

    i'm just kidding around..

    If you can fit 8x IEC 309’s in you home panel go for it, but at 32AMPs each thats a total of 256AMPs. Most residential panels can handle up to 200AMPs.

    There are much cheaper and more power/space efficient ways to build a home lab.

    Haha that would completely depend how cheap they would be willing to let’s parts go for.

    I think you would only do that if you grabbed the whole lot with intention to keep 2 or 3 yourself then sell the rest.

    Yeah, I noticed that too later! I wonder what the reserve is… Somehow I doubt it'll go for $15k :X

    Should I contact my bank? :p #2ndmortage
