I did it too
In the early 50's my step dad bought a welder for the ranch.. the only 220 outlet was for the elect stove so we just made a big extersion cord and brought the welder up to the house. a 200ft walk to old blacksmith shop if you needed another tool. In my new shop my son is an electrical contractor and he installed a 200 amp 42 circuit panel and a 100 amp sub panel... every major tool has it's own dedicaataed circuit. and when I was building it I said what's this outlet box for and he said someday you will buy a plasma cutter and it goes right here. I still have about a dozen spaces in the sub panel...the lights don't go dim when the air comp kicks in. when someone is weldiing or using one of the big saws.
