And if you want to go the investigative route in the shop, you can always pick up a device called Kill-a-watt. It’s a device you plug into the wall outlet and then plug your electronic device into it and it will tell you what it’s drawing. More or less. I see them at radio shack personally. $100 bucks is a lot agreed.
Not to throw in a 'me too'. But ... yeah, I can't see how a little shop
work could add $100 to an electric bill. My computers eat up more
power than an hour+ in the shop does. And that's with 220V tablesaw,
220v dust collector, and who knows what else running semi-constantly.
