I have normal power needs, electric stove, oil hotwater, microwave oven, window A/C units. I also will be using some power tools like radial arm saw, router etc. I was wondering if I should upgrade or not. I haven't moved into the house yet so I can't tell if lights dim etc. The people there now work on cars so they have arc welding equipment and a compressor, lathe and all the other stuff that goes into keeping a stock car.

are you saying that the former tenants ran all that equipment from the house service panel?....if so, then i imagine there was/is some definite "light-dimming" going on. at my home, i have a 200 amp. service, with a 100 amp. sub for my shop only. and i dont have an arc-welder! you might need to look into upgrading the service, and installing a sub for your shop, just to be safe.

hope this helps....
