Just a couple of quick questions. When I was at the electrical store today, I thought I had had a 50 amp breaker at home in my new subpanel for a heater or future welder application. Therefore, I purchased 6/2 with ground. Upon getting home, I find that I actually have an open 30 amp double pole.
Can I still use the 6/2 wire on the 30 amp breaker or is 6 guage way too big for the 30 amp circuit? I still want to stick with the 6 guage because I am drywalling and would like it there for a possible welder in the future. So basically what I am asking is do I or should I return the 30 amp breaker and get a 50 or is the 30 good for now? I myself will not be adding a welder. However I as I mentioned I am drywalling it and selling it soon so I want the welder option available.
